August 22, 2015 Conservation Board Workday

Main Street Nature Park Workday

The regular monthly Conservation Board workday in the Main Street Nature Park is scheduled for August 22nd 10 AM to noon.

We have been making great headway with removing invasive exotic plants this summer and the Park is looking very good. We’ve been getting lots of compliments from folks passing by while we are working.

And there’s always so much to do, so we hope you can join us for a couple of hours. It’s so satisfying to see a tree or shrub emerge from beneath a shroud of honeysuckle and oriental bittersweet!!

Diggin’ Dirt Day: September 16, 2014 9:00 AM

Diggin' Dirt Volunteers
Dirt Diggin’ Gardeners Work 3 hours to be Grinnin’ Happy with Town Gardens!

A work session took place on September 16, 2014 for weeding and planting some fall color in our downtown Weaverville flowerbeds. The session usually only takes us one to two hours to get the beds looking beautiful.  We brought pansies and a few fall mums to liven up the beds.  We encouraged anyone who can to bring a few extra perennials from your gardens to add to the public spaces, we would love to plant them. Possible donations were purple verbena, cleomes (spider plant), cardinal flower, etc.  We advised everyone to bring a water bottle, sunhat, hand tools, gloves and watering can if you can.  We encourage club members to plan to be a part of the next fun and satisfying 3D session.
