The Meadow Project
TCCC In Partnership with Sustainable Putnam
Tompkins Corners, in conjunction with Sustainable Putnam, is converting their weeds to wildflowers!
We have learned from Sustainable Putnam that many invasive plant species spread around our rural area and choke out native plants. It is our plan to join with Sustainable Putnam to determine which plants we need to remove, prepare our land for native plants and create a natural meadow come spring 2022!
Volunteers dug in and removed invasive weeds such as mugwort and covered the soil mulch.
Volunteers returned to then place cardboard and chips over the ground for winter.
Volunteers returned in the Spring to plant hundreds of plugs
Photos coming soon!
