Working in the forest is so gratifying, it’s almost funny that we call them “work parties.”  We had a big crowd this weekend and split into groups across the 10 acre Mountainview section of the forest, to plant, mulch, and clear more invasive weeds.  All summer long we’ll clear ivy and blackberry out of the few remaining pockets of weeds, so when the rains start again in the fall, we’ll be ready to fill in that space with a diverse cross-section of native plants.  Can you believe we’re already looking forward to the rains starting again?!
