Meadow Work Day at the Forge Project

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 - 16:00 to 19:00

Forge Project invites neighbors from the region to participate in a Meadow Work Day, learning about how they can fold simple restoration practices into their own home spaces and gardens, and participating in some of the remediation work happening onsite. Introductions will be led at 4:15pm and 5:45pm – please sign up for one shift for headcount, but attendees are welcome to stay for the entire time. 

Basic plant identification will be led by allied botanists Claudia Knab-Vispo and Josie Laing of the Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program, and seeding overview provided by landscape architect Jamie Purinton to guide our work. 

Context for some of the shifts happening throughout the land at Forge Project shared by Sarah Biscarra Dilley, Director of Indigenous Programs and Relationality and Paloma Wake, Strategy and Operations Manager. 

Guests are asked to bring their own gardening gloves and handtools if possible; (for example a digging fork, dandelion digger, hand clippers), a water bottle, and a willingness to work together. Snacks and beverages will be provided by Forge Project.

Forge Project charges a sliding scale fee for events and recommends direct donations in the amount of your choosing to the Cultural Affairs Department at the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. For more information on our fee structure, please see our Eventbrite page. Please RSVP for address and complete driving directions.
