Heritage Nursery Volunteer Day — Winter Preparation

With autumn in full swing it’s time to start prepar­ing our nurs­ery for win­ter! We are look­ing for vol­un­teers to help us get our young trees pro­tect­ed from the com­ing cold tem­per­a­tures of win­ter and also get our nurs­ery ready for some off sea­son infra­struc­ture projects. Our plans are to get a cou­ple thou­sand trees moved around the nurs­ery, we will be con­sol­i­dat­ing the grow rows, get­ting as many trees as pos­si­ble put inside our high tun­nel hoop hous­es, clear­ing out the green­house, get­ting the white poly cov­ers installed on the hoop hous­es and final­ly heal­ing in the trees in the grow rows with wood chips. This is a crit­i­cal task to help our young trees sur­vive the win­ter and thrive next spring. Look­ing for vol­un­teers who are capa­ble of lift­ing and mov­ing our 2–3 gal­lon sized con­tainer­ized trees. We will pro­vide gloves and tools includ­ing wag­ons to help move the trees around. We ask vol­un­teers to dress appro­pri­ate­ly for the weath­er and wear closed toed shoes. Your help is great­ly appre­ci­at­ed and we look for­ward to work­ing with you.
