Greenbelt Food Forest Exploration & Workday

We bet you didn't know figs, passion fruit, hazelnuts, and more can be grown outside in Maryland! And you won’t believe how many wild plants are edible (and delicious!) You can learn about it all with our Greenbelt Food Forest Project! Forest gardening is based upon the principles of permaculture, and this type of ecologically based, self-fertilizing agricultural practice is proving to produce extremely high yields of crops. 

We'll be getting everything ready for the Spring with some mulching, invasive species removal (that's our fancy way of saying "weeding"), and planting. 

Please be prepared for outdoor work by bringing a reusable water bottle, close-toed shoes, long pants, and work gloves. Also, if you have any tools such as loppers, pruners, bow saws, shovels, metal rakes, pitchforks, or other gardening equipment, please bring them along (be sure to write your name on them). RSVP is required to [masked] or call[masked]!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
