Invasive Removal Workshop
Saturday, June 8, 2019

CitySoil Farm in Renton

Learn and do at this invasive removal workshop. Here we will learn about Himalayan blackberries and why they are harmful for our ecology and how to remove them. Many of you might already experience this in your own backyard! After the introductory lesson of why and how to ID Himalayan blackberries, put knowledge to work as we work together to help clear CitySoil Farm of invasive blackberries.

While there we also want to share with you the community aspects of this urban farm. There will be time for a teaching component on invasive weeds, also break-time for checking out the rows of vegetables.  Our hope is this experience will acquaint volunteers to the joys of farming, even if one lives in an urban area.
