Oakvillegreen’s Mulch Fest

Posted on Updated on



Looking for opportunities to engage your students and get them involved in a stewardship project without leaving your school and with immediate results and impact?

Organize your students to take care of the trees in your school yard!

Mulch helps to conserve water, add nutrients to the soil and discourage weeds.


This is a free event.


Oakvillegreen will provide buckets, shovels, gloves, guidance and all you need for a successful mulching day.

The Town of Oakville will provide free mulch for your school.

Register today by following these easy steps:

1. Name a “Mulchfest Coordinator”.

This person will be our contact and will help coordinate the event.

2. Get everybody involved and spread the word.

Talk to other school staff about mulching. Involve parents and students via school newsletters, or student posters. Recruit parent volunteers to help the day of the event.

3. Select a date.

Oakvillegreen’s Mulch fest will happen during the week of June 13th to 17th, 2016. Pick one day during that week to mulch your school yard.

4. Complete the form below to confirm your date and register your group. 

Fill out the form here. We will be in touch to confirm your date and provide you with a “Mulchfest Package” with further information, curriculum connections and best practices for mulching. 

Your school could win a schoolyard greening prize. Share a photo of your Mulch Fest group or completed mulching work. 

Registered groups which share their Mulch Fest group photo or a photo of their completed mulching work using the hashtag #mulchfest via Facebook or Twitter will be entered into a draw to win a schoolyard greening prize.
