10/29: jacket found at "Getting Started with Nut Trees" at CCE-Tompkins

Do you remember wearing a jacket to the "Getting Started With Nut Trees" class at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County on Thursday, October 29 from 6:30-8:30 pm, but you haven't seen it since?  We found a jacket the next morning, and thought that surely someone would have come to claim it by now, but it’s still here. If you think you rolled up your jacket, stuck it under your seat, then left without it, give our front desk a call at 272-2292, give a brief description, and it’s yours (again!)

**by CLEAN we mean bags of residential leaves, raked up from your lawn or garden beds only. Leaves raked from the street often contain trash or contaminants from cars and road runoff. No branches, large stems, or other garden debris. No leaves from Black Walnut trees as they contain a toxin that inhibits plant growth.

Permaculture Park volunteer session, Sunday Nov. 15

Learn to Build Arbors and Raised Beds at Permaculture Park Volunteer Session

This Sunday, November 15 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm staff from Cornell Cooperative Extension will lead a volunteer session in the Permaculture Park to build raised beds and arbors from locally harvested locust wood. The Permaculture Park project is located in Conley Park, a city park on Adams Street in the Northside neighborhood. CCE staff members have been working with neighborhood and community volunteers for the past three years to plant edible trees, bushes and ground covers in the park to demonstrate traditional and unusual fruits and nuts that can be grown in an urban setting. Plantings include apple and plum trees, raspberry, gooseberry, currant and jostaberry bushes, and strawberry and lingonberry groundcover plants.

 

This Sunday we invite volunteers to help construct raised planters and arbors at each entrance to the park. The raised planters will be used to grow more fruits and vegetables in the park, and the arbors will support edible, ornamental and useful vines such as hardy kiwi, scarlet runner beans and hops. The arbor posts are from locust trees that were harvested just one block from the park! Come support a community project, find out more about growing fruit in downtown Ithaca, and learn how to work with locally harvested locust planks and locust poles. For more information or to RSVP please contact Chrys Gardener at cab69-HmMyXyqgL2CVc3sceRu5cw@public.gmane.org or 272-2292 extension 241.
