From all reports our MG project day was great in all three locations. We got the shelves built for the Root Cellar at York County Shelter, which we will likely fill with potatoes later on, we planted 1800 strawberry plants at Spiller Farm, and we got a large chunk of the sheet mulching for the garden expansion at Laudholm done! Well done Class of 2013 and all those others who came and helped!
Field Trip this coming Wednesday, May 15:
Wildflower and Forest Tree ID.
Class will meet at Berry Best Farm in Lebanon at 9:00 AM. Please dress for the outdoors and walking in the woods. BRING your Forest Trees of Maine books, already given to this year’s class during Mike Murphy’s Class. We will be handing out Newcomb’s Wildflower Guides to the class of 2013.
Continuing MGs who are joining us, please bring your copies of both guides.
Homework – Review the Forest Trees of Maine Guide including the winter and summer keys, the glossary and the leaf shapes and structures.
See you Wednesday at Berry Best Farm,
