Work Bee - Installing Tree Collars

Despite the chill arctic winds and frozen fingers all the tree collars were successfully installed.

A special thanks to the volunteers who made it down to help out! 

The tree tubes not only deter deer from eating the trees they are also designed to act like a mini green house, directing the trees to grow up quickly towards the more direct sunlight.  Another benefit is that they will aid in locating the smaller trees that, in summer, are easily hidden in the tall grasses and white sweet clover.

Now that winter is upon us and the food forest is going into hibernation, its time to plan for next year.

Stay tuned for upcoming events like spring planting, mulching, plant donation drive etc!
