March 2013 Events

 March 3, 2013:  Work Party at Prusch Park Heritage Orchard, 9:00 to 11:30.  This is a relatively important work party, so please make a special point to join in, if only for half an hour.  Thanks to Mollie Tobias, the City of San Jose is donating a couple young volunteers, but we have a lot to do right now.  Feel free to bring cardboard, as it is a particularly powerful weed control agent for us.

As spring dawns, dormant pruning is hopelessly behind, and legion weeds assertively worm roots through perfect soil, while their greens push aside white-molded mulch toward the seemingly thoughtless inferno that keeps and kills us all.  More than a few trees suffer severe sucker growth, as well.  Atop these routine concerns, and with loftier priority, we will be planting several new trees.  Besides the opportunity to leave a visible and worthy legacy by planting a rare tree, you are likely to gain a few pointers for the next time you plant one at home.
