About the Event
The Forest Society is partnering with the VT/NH Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) to start a chestnut seed orchard on the Tom Rush Forest in Deering, NH! Join us as we get started in this effort planting our first 600 chestnuts. We are looking for 15-20 volunteers on this day to help lay weed barrier fabric, plant chestnuts, install growth tubes, and put down mulch. We'll start at 10am and work until we're done, which will likely depend upon the number of hands we have. Please register below if interested, so that we can email you directions to the field where we'll be planting.
