Thanks to a crew of volunteers, we just finished off the second hoop house with greenhouse film. Why is this important? The covering helps to keep uniform temperature and humidity which is essential for propagating plants through the radical temperature changes we realize on the mountain. Even native plants need protection from the elements during early development stages. We will also be able to start propagation earlier in the year and engage in woody propagation -- growing plants from stem and twig cuttings.
Volunteers are critically important to our nursery program. We have plenty of opportunities for volunteers, including boy and girl scouts, service organizations, and master gardeners. Contact us through the Work Days page if you are interested in helping us out.
