Cesar Chavez Day of Service @ Capitol Park // San Jose

Cesar Chavez Day of Service Planting with Our City Forest at Capitol Park.

Saturday, March 30 · 9am – 12pm
Capitol Park
800 Peter Pan Avenue, San Jose, CA 95116.

RSVP free tickets here.


Help plant trees in San Jose and surrounding areas; learn how to properly plant a tree to ensure the best chance for a healthy life.

Cesar Chavez, and colleagues like Dolores Huerta, fought for the rights and committed to serve so many disenfranchised communities throughout California and the rest of the nation, including San Jose and the greater South Bay. Join us in recognizing and honoring Chavez’s legacy by planting trees in a under canopied park.

Please show up on time for our tree planting demonstration at the beginning of the event to learn how to plant a tree properly.

This planting will take place at Capitol Park. We recommend you arrive a little early so the check-in process is easier on you.

Meet us at the corner of Bambi Lane & Peter Pan Ave intersection near the park sign. There is street parking available on Peter Pan Avenue and Bambi Lane.
