Our team has experience in horticulture. On any given day, you could pull out invasive species, move brush, or plant seeds. Come with an open mind to learn and get your hands dirty.
Good question! Please bring a lunch bag, water and any snacks you need for the day. We stop for lunch and laughs between 12 - 1 pm. Bring a good pair of boots, garden clothes and gloves for working. We have gardening equipment to get you started.
Every day varies on the needs of the land. Our current goal for spring is to remove the invasive species to let the natural plants resurge in the SṈIDȻEȽ area.
