Joseph Creek Streamkeepers are holding a work bee next Tuesday and Wednesday between 5 and 8 PM at Spooner Park between Mt Baker High School and Western Financial Place and are looking for your help.
Over a year ago native plants were planted in clusters called permaculture guilds involving group of smaller native plants planted around evergreens. As they grew so did the grasses and weeds including invasive weeds like burdock. Last July several members assisted a professional remove the burdock, weeds and grasses. This treatment has been repeated. Now the group would appreciate assistance from any interested members of the public who have time to help lay sheets of cardboard to cover the area around the permaculture guilds to prevent sunlight from reaching the grass. Then mulch will be dumped on top of the cardboard which should eliminate grasses and weeds.
