Come join us Saturday, May 2nd, for a fun afternoon of tree planting! The Calais Vermontivate Team in conjuction with the Maple Corner Community Center will be spending the afternoon of Green-Up Day planting Hazelbert trees out behind the MCCC. Hazelbert trees grow great in central Vermont and we think they'll love their new home in Maple Corner. They grow about 10 feet tall meaning the easily hand-crackible nut clusters should be easy to harvest and delicious to eat. We plan to plant 5 Hazelbert Trees staggered along the fence on the North side of the Community Center property. Along with planting the trees, we'll spend a little time cleaning up winter debris from the Community Center lawn and play areas. The leaves we rake will make great mulch for our new trees!
In addition to yourself, a friend, and your willingness to help, please bring any of the following tools you have available: Wheelbarrow, Garden Shovel, Leaf Rake. Might we also suggest folks bring for themselves: work gloves, a water bottle, light snacks, big smiles and a strong desire to save the planet!
See you on Saturday!
