One of the driest winters in living memory puts a little stress on the planting that we have done lately
A large group came from starbucks on the Martin Luther King day of sharing event January 20th, a new tradition of voluntarism that holiday has spurred.
We had a visit from GSP biologist Gillian Weed to evaluate the site for the Natural Area Crew (NAC) to assist with special tools in cutting the Himalayan Blackberry thicket in the middle of the site and removing large invasive trees like Holly and Hawthorn. She also began her career in neighboring Coleman park as a crew leader and had several hard won lessens to tell us about making compost 'rafts' of weeds we pull and proper placement in planting.
The Next big work day is March 8th, with the NAC team assisting, and hopefully more mulch delivered.
