Earth Day Columbus

Pam from the City came to help and she did a ton of work! Together we cut down the huge honeysuckles and burning bushes from the hard-to-reach parts of the woods and pulled them out. We let so much sunlight reach the forest floor so native plants can return!

Today I was able to pick up trash in the park to keep it safe and beautiful for both the families in the neighborhood and the animals who call the park home.

Number of volunteers that showed up ran from 10 to 15 people through out the 1:00-4:00 (3 hours) time period. The volunteers worked hard and cleared wider opening to the already informally establish path.
The biggest challenge was up rooting some of the very mature honeysuckle (invasive species) trees.
We still need help in transporting the refuge to the Worthington Engineering / Parks and Rec area for disposal. A large pickup truck would be helpful. The City of Worthington will accept and dispose of the waste. But they will not pick it up.

Experience was good. The amount of trash we gathered was a lot. It seemed to make a good difference and some people thanked us for our efforts. It felt nice to help.

Glad to help. You really can’t complain about thrash in our city, which honestly, is quite bad compared to other municipalities, if you’re not willing to help. That’s assuming you’re physically able . I would volunteer again

I really enjoyed working with everyone in the garden today. I can’t wait to start planting.
