Spring Volunteer Days A Success!

Over 2 1/2 days members and volunteers managed to turn over all the plots, start some heirloom seeds (indoors), trench compost a new plot, take down a few trees, which were all cut and bundled for removal, clean the garbage and debris off the hill, plus move several hundred pounds of wood chips up the hill to make room for more growing space.

Laguradia High School Ecology Club Students are great workers.

Volunteers dug up huge rocks, which are now being used to line Prospect Farm's paths and terraces

Worms!
