April 19th Planting Postscript

Thanks to the volunteers the seedlings were all planted on the Good Counsel and North Mankato Highway 14 sites as well as several other smaller locations.

Rains and cool temperatures have been ideal for the seedlings to get a good start. In July and August we will be calling on volunteers again to help keep the thistle population under control by cutting off flower heads before they go to seed.

We also need to plan for future plantings in the Mankato-North Mankato area. We need volunteers — individuals as well as groups and businesses — who might assist in future planning and planting. If you or your group/company might be interested in adopting a site, sponsoring a planting, or helping to coordinate next year’s activities, please contact Malda Farnham by email or at 507-345-7339.

Thanks once again for your service to both Mother Nature and your community! — TH
