Make A Difference Week – Volunteer Day in the Food Forest and Nursery
Food Forest and Nursery Day – Thursday, June 10th, 10am – 2pm
A Food Forest is a multi-layered diverse garden in which every plant serves several interconnected purposes. The plants are chosen for several reasons – some of which include food production, nitrogen fixing, creating mulch for soil building, and feeding pollinators. In an effort to mimic a natural forest, the plants are grown in various layers: Canopy, shrub, herbaceous layer, vining layer, rhizome layer and ground cover. A Food Forest needs less inputs including time, water and fertilizer in order to sustainably produce food and other products.
Be surrounded by nature with your hands in the dirt for this day of weeding, harvesting and planting.
To register, please email nursery@
Note: This is a weekly event! We’re always looking for regular volunteers.
