Stewardship Service Days - Volunteers Planting Trees in Chesterfield







 One act of love for neighbors and future generations is to help heal the wounded Earth and restore clean water. Planting trees is the best action you can take to help restore damaged local waterways.


Stewardship Service Days are a wonderful opportunity for your faithful Volunteer Group to plant trees and contribute to healing. 



Who? 200+ volunteers of all faiths are needed for an interfaith mega-planting to help restore Rock Creek and Stoney Creek. This can be for youth groups, family groups, men’s groups, etc. We seek to partner with 20 congregations, each bringing 10-20 volunteers to participate together.

What? Activities will include a kickoff interfaith liturgy in the morning, followed by tree and shrub planting. We provide everything – tools, gloves, refreshments, water, and training! Congregational groups will work together with a pre-assigned trained crew leader.

When? Sat. March 12th and Sat. April 9th beginning at 9 AM at Mt. Zion-UMC Magothy 8178 Artic Drive, Pasadena MD, 21122

Where? Chesterfield Community in Pasadena, Maryland (Anne Arundel County)

Sign-up? Contact Bonnie Sorak at or call 410-609-6852 if you can bring a group of any aged volunteers ready to get to work!
