This weekend, Reslife Staff Member Kyle Finnell and a group of students rode out to accept a donation to HMS of over 100 plants from The Amherst Garden Club. We are so greatful to Marti Warren and the Amherst Garden Club for their wonderful donation to the High Mowing School gardens.
The forest management project across the street is well underway. A group of horticulture students took a trip down the hill to walk the managed site and learn from forester Patrick Kenney about the process of determining which trees to cut and which to preserve as well as the tools used in selective cutting sites such as this. In an effort to put the wood to good use, 30 tons of wood chips from this site were delivered to our on-campus gardens this week to help catalyze the creation of a new vegetable bed.
