CREEC Youth Group has taken on many tasks this month. We have mulched all of the restoration plants and water them 3 times a week. We’ve begun potting up the oak acorns planted this Spring into 4 inch tree pots. Last year’s acorns are moving into 5 gallon pots. we’ve removed part of the hay bale garden and replaced and planted 1 side of our new tire planter garden. There are still 2 very large salvias in the hay bales to move before completing the rest of the tire planters.
We have new students completing their community service, learning the weeds, and the way to propagate plants. Most are happy and enthusiastic to be a part of CREEC.
The following students participated in CREEC in July:
Tony Neely, Jr.
Richard Moody did some tree removal and planting, mowing, weedwacking, and tool repair.
