Happy Equinox! Spring is here ~ plants are leafing out, peaches and plums are blooming, and folks are planting our perennial plants throughout the country. It is the busiest time of the year for the nursery with finishing up cuttings, seeding, grafting fruit trees, weeding and fertilizing, potting up bare root plants, and shipping out plant orders. We are very grateful to the many volunteers that have gotten their hands dirty with us this past month. We had nearly 30 volunteers come through at our work party on March 4th, had about 40 college students on Alternative Spring Break from Penn St. and University of LaVerne come through for tours and volunteer work, and had teachers from Slide Ranch on the coast come out. Our work and plant knowledge is being spread to youth in many places. Much thanks to all of the hands that have helped us in the busyness of Spring!
We have two upcoming volunteer work parties on Saturdays in April:
April 8th 10am-4pm
April 22nd (Earth Day!) 9am-4pm
On Earth Day, join us for a Volunteer Day of fruit tree planting, weeding, cleaning and more including a Super Citrus Fruit Tree Sale, a Sale of Salves and Tinctures from our gardens, a bounce house for kids, and a Kale Smoothie Pop Up. Please bring your own Water, Pot Luck Food and Good Attitude! We are building community as well as growing plants!
