Help Break Ground For the WIN Fast Forest Oct 21- CANCELLED

October 21, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This work day is scheduled for Saturday, October 21th from 9am-12pm at Wright-Locke Farm.
CANCELED DUE TO RAIN 

Grow Local for the Planet, in collaboration with Wright-Locke Farm, is continuing Winchester’s own “Miyawaki” or WIN Fast Forest. This involves transforming a bit of low habitat-value wetlands into a high-value mature forest in 30 years rather than the typical 150 years. 

Volunteers will help remove the root systems of goldenrod and other non-woody species to make way for the native trees we will plant there in the Spring.  This event is for ages 11 and up (17 and under must be accompanied by an adult).

If you would like to join, please first fill out this online form (this must be complete prior to volunteering). Then sign up to volunteer on the 21th by following this link.

Remember to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, work boots, and bring a water bottle…and a pair of gloves if you have them. If you cannot commit to the full time, that is fine. We would love to receive any help you can offer. 

You will be meeting the coordinator, Prassede, in front of the Squash Barn (above the goat pen) at at Wright-Locke Farm. Parking is available across the street at Mullen Field.

ANY QUESTIONS: Contact us at winfastforest@wfmchub.org
