Invasives removal and native planting day!

On the Invasive Removal and Native Planting Day (IRNPD) Nathan Bourne helped take out the giant privet tree in our backyard and Becca painted a little poison on the stump to help it fully die. Callie Crider made a beautiful sign for the native wildflower area, which are all labeled with carved slate tiles, and Paul Dixon delegated the privet tree to the back woods.

Thanks to McCrady/LLC for the funding! We received $300 to buy native plants, which we purchased from the Sequachie Cove Farm including: Paw paws, serviceberries, beauty berries, native honeysuckle, witchhazel, spicebush, alternate leaf dogwood, buckeye, and lots of wildflowers like foamflower, firepink, shooting star, soloman's seal, colombine, and meadow rue.
