Workdays for Project Blazing Star

posted Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM by

First Saturday of every month 8:30 am - 11:30 am at Hermann Park's Bayou Parklands

Meet at the pavilion near 6520 Almeda (between S. MacGregor & Holcombe). See map below.
We will do preparation work for planting on Friday and plant, if time permits. Saturday will be planting day. We need planters to join them and also a few experienced prairie people (or people willing to take a quick training before the volunteers come) to supervise. 

Plans are to:
  • Remove and discard the non-native plants, where the flags are.
  • Adjust the hole to fit a 1 gallon prairie plant.
  • Fill the hole with water.
  • Let water soak in (work on the next hole in the meantime).
  • Plant the prairie plant (Please DO NOT plant too low and no shallow well around the new plant!!!).
  • Water the new plant (ideally 2 gallons).
