Orchard Maintenance Day
Saturday, Sept 22, 2018, 9am - 12pm
Paint our new tool shed! Master woodcraftsman Roger Eberhardt has built a tool shed for us... now we need to paint it!
Do you have any tools that you can donate to the CRFG shed? Please bring them! Marv will show us how to sharpen them.
Get our orchard in shape! Pull or whack weeds, cut off sprouts, dig out old stumps (anyone?), stake up the Paw Paw and Pakistani Mulberry trees, sweep off cobwebs from the kiosk.
Give our orchard gate signs some TLC! Stain and repaint the wood sign; give the white sign a good cleaning.
We will have the following on hand: Fruit for snacking! Water and Gatorade!
Paint and brushes for the tool shed; stain, paint, and brushes for the gate sign; bucket and rag for cleaning the white gate sign; broom for the kiosk; stakes and green stretch tie tape for trees.
Water, gloves, hat, appropriate shoes, sunscreen, insect repellent.
Hoes, rakes, pruners, gas/battery-operated weedwhackers.
