About the Event
Drylands Agroecology Research works at the intersection of restoration and agriculture, designing farm ecosystems that sequester carbon, reverse desertification, and support biodiversity. This spring, we are planting 6000 trees and shrubs across 50 dryland acres at one of our partner properties, Yellow Barn Farm. These are a mixture of fruit, forage, and nurse trees that will help rehydrate the landscape, produce valuable forage for livestock, create habitat, and produce abundant food for humans. We are inviting you to join us for a fun, educational, and impactful planting day!
We'll start with a little orientation to the farm systems and planting tutorial. Our first session will be from 9-12, followed by a picnic lunch. We highly encourage you to also stay for the afternoon if you are able, as it takes a little while to get into the flow of planting! Older children are welcome to join in the planting (with supervision), and if you would like to bring younger children along, you are welcome to do so, but please make sure you are able to supervise them.
We recommend bringing the following:
- Appropriate layers for the weather (this will be entirely outdoors)
- Closed toed shoes
- Gardening gloves
- Sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, or whatever other sun protection you need
- A picnic lunch, waterbottle, and any snacks you may need
