Fall Outdoor Workdays

Saturday November 10, 9 am to Noon

First, Thank you! to everyone who pitched in at the September 8 workday. With many hands, we made real progress on removing invasives, especially poplar, prickly ash and buckthorn along the storm water ditch north of the church. Removing invasives will allow our plantings of high bush cranberries and white pine, as well as other native species on our property to continue their growth and expansion. As native plants expand, there will be more butterflies, dragonflies, and birds for us to enjoy next spring and summer.  We continued to remove this summer’s bumper crop of weeds in our beds along the building.

November 10 Workday will be the last 2018 Outdoor Workday. We will wrap trees, check mulch, spray young pine trees to prevent grazing by deer, and other remaining fall duties.

We welcome all help, including families. We work and have a good time. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and bring work gloves. Questions? Contact Paula Tompkins pstompkins@stcloudstate.edu
