Help Yourself Rail-Trail public orchard work day

Join Help Yourself volunteers along the Norwottuck Rail Trail in Northampton as we care for the dozens of public access fruit trees and 150+ grape vines put in over the past 3 years. More info about the project:

We'll clear around existing plantings, work on polycultures, clear some brush and sheet mulch for fall plantings, do some priming for new murals, and more! There will be some snacks provided, bring some to share. If you'd like to come for any or all of it, PLEASE RSVP at [masked], let us know when you can make it, so we can know who to expect and when.
