May 12: TREE-PLANTING AT BETTER FARM

Better Farm is entering its seventh year of a partnership with the DEC's School Seedling Program, which seeks to encourage young people to learn about the natural world and the value of trees in it. We will invite local youngsters this spring to join us for a morning of planting 50 white spruce seedlings on our property, our mission being to provide visitors to Better Farm with the knowledge of how beneficial trees are to the environment.  Each year, we pledge to plant at least 100 trees on the property of Better Farm and in its surrounding environs. This process replenishes our local habitat and compensates for the loss of trees throughout the year due to a variety of factors (namely ice storms!). We also harvest standing-dead trees on the property, which makes way for new growth. Since 2009, more than 1,000 trees have been planted.

Planting starts around 11am! Be sure to wear appropriate footwear (boots recommended). We have several shovels but you are encouraged to bring your own as well! We will provide light snacks and refreshments, as well as educational materials about native trees and shrubs. Please RSVP to info@betterfarm.org.
