Mulch Fest


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.

Our spring 2018 mulch fest will take place in June 2018 – dates TBA. Register in the spring 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 next Mulch Fest will happen during 1 week in June 2018. Once we announce the dates, you can 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.

Spread the word and spread the mulch! Share a photo of your Mulch Fest group or completed mulching work.

Share your Mulch Fest group photo or a photo of your completed mulching work with Oakvillegreen using the hashtag #mulchfest via Facebook or Twitter.
