Buhr Park Food Forest Planning

At our last meeting (notes) we talked about compost toilets, cob ovens, and shelters as a long term vision for at the park. We also made some decisions about our signage needs and ways to make them. We'll see how the results of those conversations have fermented in the interim an make plans for what comes next. Who knows, maybe we'll be able to meet at the park???

We also went over projects for the coming season,which include:

• deer protection

•edging to prevent grass invasions

• finish weeding & wood chipping around trees

• swales

• hugelkultur

• guilds for the trees

• sitting area

• community involvement

All ages welcome for all or some of the time.  RSVP appreciated. Feel free to pass this on to others who might be interested. Come join us and find your own niche in our food forest!

    Condition of fruit trees & shrubs in Food Forest: Mostly good, except the bark of the Cornelian cherry and 5 Serviceberries is badly chewed. One grape vine is bitten off about 6" from the base. No other damage on any others. Most of the snow is gone except around the pawpaws. I circled the Cornelian cherry with fine mesh fencing on the outside of the deer fence, but not sure if that will prevent further damage. I assume all damage is the work of voles. Any ideas please feel free to implement or let me know.
