Friday Stewardship Event!
September 10, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The Sept. 10 Friday Stewardship Project will continue one of the most challenging but important Stewardship efforts of the year. We made excellent progress on 9/3, thanks to many dedicated hands on deck, including some visitors all the way from Maine!
We will continue our pursuit of the blackberry patch on the wildlife sanctuary area of Alder Creek Farm, just south of the Garden fence. We are focusing on this one patch, to better understand how these patches evolve, and how best to limit their spread and remove them, so we can begin to bring this nasty invasive under control throughout the Farm.
You will not be required to fight your way into a blackberry thicket! (unless you want to) We will continue to focus on limiting the spread of the patch by working around the periphery and into the edge of the rushes. This will also help us get easier access to the main blackberry stems, in order to dig them out by the roots.
Please meet at Alder Creek Farm at 9:00 a.m. (see map, below)
We encourage you to bring treats to share. We will provide sturdy gloves and tools, but if you have a favorite pair of gloves, please bring them along (especially if they’re nice and thick). If you have chaps, they might help too.
I hope to see you there!
