Plant Potting Up Workday with Pound Ridge Land Conservancy

Sunday, July 16 2023

Learn how to grow native plants and help grow plants for use in restoration projects in our parks! Sign up here.

Come work with the Wild Woods Restoration Project volunteers with Pound Ridge Land Conservancy to pot up seedlings and learn how to care for them at home until they are ready for planting. We'll be potting up seedlings of several species of native plants. We'll be sitting outdoors in the shade or under a covered area while we work, and you'll be learning from experts about the native plants and how to grow them. We provide the pots, soil and plants. All you need to do is learn and help.

Location: Armstrong Preserve, 1361 Old Post Rd. (Rt. 121), Pound Ridge, NY.
Advanced registration is required.

• Glasses - If you wear glasses, don't forget to bring them so you can see the seedlings well.
• Gloves - You might want to bring garden gloves to wear, although with tiny seedlings, some people prefer to use bare hands. Nitrile gloves also work.
• Beverage - Bring your own water to drink.
• Small notebook + pen - It never hurts to have something to take notes on.

Dress for the weather, and be prepared to get a little dirty from the potting soil.

BECOMING A GROWER: We need many volunteers to help grow the plants. If you are willing to take home plants to grow for us, you will need to have a place outdoors for a 10 inch by 20 inch tray on level ground, in part-shade (gets a few hours of sun during the day but is also shaded for a few hours). You'll need to take care of them until the fall when we will have planting work days scheduled. You can take plants home to care for right from the event!

WEATHER: We will email you in case there is a change of plans due to weather. We will be under a covered area so the event can still proceed even if it rains.
