Somme Woods East workday is up next!
Sunday, September 24, 9am to noon. All are welcome – let’s get to work!
Seed picking is the highest priority this time of year until about Thanksgiving.
Question: Is it more important right now than cutting & burning brush?
Answer: Actually, yes. Because each species of seed is a limited-time opportunity. We miss it, it drops to the ground or blows away, and we have to wait a whole year to try to get it again. Seeds of our native plants are so rare, so special – and each one is found and collected by us, the volunteers! It’s our honor, privilege and obligation to the ecosystem. Once hard frost hits and the seed picking is done, we have all winter and spring to cut brush.
Wanted! Volunteers at our weekly seed-picking workdays. More and more species of seed are getting ripe each week. No experience necessary! It’s a relaxing way to be outside and serve the planet. We have one on the weekend (sometimes Saturday, sometimes Sunday) and one on a weekday, usually Tuesday afternoon.
