October Bonfire!

Our October meeting was held at Pearl Creek Farm, Michelle’s and Brian’s little native plant oasis. Several folks from the chapter showed up early to harvest seeds from the prairie planting, now six years old. Several seeds were exchanged, including a particularly generous harvest of common milkweed seed. At dusk, the annual lighting of the “Brushpile of Shame” commenced. This year, the pile consisted of a few non-native thistles, some honeysuckle, wintercreeper, and some multiflora rose. It seems that we won’t be running out of material for the brushpile any time soon!
