A Beautiful Workday in the Grove

Braving the fall chill on November 2, a volunteer team that included 20 U.Va. students, 10 CATS members, and 7 Tree Steward trainees took part in our annual workday at the Grove, a section of East McIntire Park where we have placed a variety of trees. Under project director Robin Hanes, the crew cleared the plantings of weeds, nourished them with healthy doses of compost from Panorama Farms, and blanketed them with a fresh layer of mulch. In addition to enhancing a special landscape in our community, this work will help our trees withstand whatever’s thrown at them by this coming winter.
