Audubon Workshop on Organic Gardening, Sunday Afternoon, April 30

Audubon Workshop on Organic Gardening, Sunday Afternoon, April 30

Jamestown, NY – If you’ve ever thought how wonderful it would be to harvest fresh produce in your backyard, Audubon Community Nature Center has just the thing for you.

Audubon is presenting “Seeds and Soil: Planning Your Garden” on Sunday, April 30, 1-2:30 p.m.

In this first of a series of workshops on organic gardening, you can plan a food garden and plant seeds to take home. You will leave with handouts that provide information on preparing a garden and where to get the best seeds and starter plants.

You will learn from a couple of experts with a lot of experience. Scott and Pam Stoleson have been raising some of their own food for more than 15 years. They estimate that they produce 85% of the vegetables, 50% of the fruit, and 10% of the nuts that they consume.

Come prepared to get your hands dirty, as you will also be planting seeds to take with you for your own garden. You are welcome to bring your own gardening gloves if you like.

Audubon Community Nature Center Volunteer Day: Saturday, April 22

Audubon Community Nature Center Volunteer Day: Saturday, April 22

Jamestown, NY – Audubon Community Nature Center invites you to celebrate Earth Day by giving back.  

You can join the fun on Saturday, April 22, when staff and volunteers will be working hard to make Audubon’s buildings and grounds more beautiful and friendly for visitors and the wildlife residents. Folks of every age and ability work rain or shine and have a blast doing it. After all the hard work, lunch is provided to all volunteers.

Here’s how it works.

You are asked to sign up ahead of time so staff can better plan for the day.

After registering that morning, you choose a crew to work with on a specific project. Projects include pulling non-native plants, planting native seeds and shrubs, sprucing up the gardens, picking up trash as part of Roadside Cleanup, and more.

You’ll be dirty and tired at the end of it all, but oh-so-satisfied with all you accomplished. Then stay and enjoy lunch with your fellow workers.
