Happy New Year! It's 2022 and we have seeds to clean and invasive plants to pull.
Seed Cleaning At Earth Sangha Office: Join us for a morning of seed cleaning at the Earth Sangha office! Everything we grow at the Wild Plant Nursery is from seed we’ve collected from wild areas (with permission of course). That means we need to clean all the seed before sowing in late winter/early spring. It’s a big job and we need your help. Because seed cleaning events will be held indoors at the Earth Sangha office, all volunteers must be vaccinated and wear a mask.
Directions: The address to the Earth Sangha Office is 5101 I Backlick Road, Annandale, VA 22003. We are the last unit on the left.
Invasives Removal at MBLP: Join our team for a morning of invasives removal at the Marie Butler Leven Preserve. We’ll focus on removing woody invasive species like English Ivy, Wineberry, and Porcelainberry. We’ll provide all tools and gloves. Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring your own water.
Directions: The Marie Butler Leven Preserve is located at 1501 Kirby Road, McLean, VA
Winter Planting at Poplar Ford Park Field: Join us for another winter planting on Saturday February 19, 2022 at Poplar Ford Park in partnership with FCPA. We’ll need many hands to put hundreds of herbaceous plugs in the ground. The list of species includes Lespedeza capitata, Lespedeza virginica, Liatris squarrosa, Sericocarpus linifolius, and Solidago rigida. We'll provide all tools and gloves. Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring your own water.
Directions: Poplar Ford Park Field is located off of Bull Run Post Office Rd, Centreville, VA. Drive through the gate and park at the lot at the end of the drive.
