Attention gardeners! You have probably seen requests for volunteers to do invasive removal, but did you know about the new Pyramid Garden in Forest Hill Park? Last September we planted about 100 local ecotype native plants in the area and have high hopes that they will thrive and spread to other areas. These plants were selected primarily for their support for pollinators, birds and other wildlife. This is the site of the first invasive plant removal efforts in the park years ago and one of the areas where Friends of Forest Hill Park continues to work. It’s important to maintain this area.
We are looking for folks who might be interested in helping maintain the area in and around the new garden. This will be relatively easy work; mostly weeding with some invasive management in the previously cleared areas, but not the “heavy duty” invasive removal.
Those interested in being on the “YES, I can help sometimes” list please contact (email is on the Facebook post linked above). You will receive an e-mail in advance of a work day. Workdays will also be posted here.
Please let us know if you have questions.
