Service Partnerships in Urban Greenspaces: Cultivating partnerships is much like nurturing a tree to maturity- it requires funds, skills, and support. Volunteers not only plant our trees, but they maintain, track, teach about, and provide funding for them. In considering these powerful roles, the presenters will address three aspects of volunteer partnerships: 1) raising funds through corporate volunteer programs, 2) raising power through large event-based workdays, and 3) raising skills through dedicated volunteers supported by community partners. Come learn from three urban greening organizations across the country as they share lessons and strategies.
