PLANT A TREE ... It's good news that two different Plant-a-Tree Day events (hosted, respectively, by One Tree Planted and Canopy) on Saturday, Sept. 28, have registered so many participants that they can't take more at this point. So here's more good news: If you missed your chance this weekend, Canopy is offering regular tree planting events this fall, starting with an event on Saturday, Oct. 5, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Midtown neighborhood. Plant trees at residents' homes, under the guidance of trained Canopy volunteers. All ages and experience levels welcome. Meet at Seale Park, 3100 Stockton Place, Palo Alto. Register or find additional planting dates at canopy.org, or for more information, email info@canopy.org.

INSTALLING WALL TILE ... Learn how to make short work of tiling and grouting with a free tile installation workshop on Saturday, Sept. 28, 10-11:30 a.m. at Home Depot. Get the low-down on the supplies you'll need and how to avoid common mistakes when installing tile. The workshop will also cover tile trends. Home Depot, 1781 E. Bayshore Road, East Palo Alto. For more information, call 650-462-6800 or visit homedepot.org.

FOOD WORTH CELEBRATING ... It's hard to get more farm-to-table than the second annual Food Worth Celebrating event on Saturday, Sept. 28, 3:30-7:30 p.m. at Hidden Villa. The community farm is hosting a feast of its own produce and meats, cooked by Roadside Rotisserie, plus local cheeses and wines. The event also features discussions about the principles of regenerative agriculture, which aims to increase biodiversity (attract more pollinators and wildlife) and enrich the soil. Tickets are $50-$150. Hidden Villa is located at 26870 Moody Road, Los Altos Hills. For more information, visit hiddenvilla.org or call 650-949-8650.
