West Penn Recreation Center
30th and Paulowna, Polish Hill
6:30-8pm Knotweed Slash & Dig – Our first attempt at cutting back the Japanese Knotweed at Frank Curto Park. Wear work clothes. We’ll have a trailer to take the knotweed stalks out. Then we’ll dig up as many roots as we can get. Bring your own equipment (like shovels) if you can.
8:00-9:00 Permaculture Design Discussion
Jeff Jaeger of Octopus Organic Gardening will share projects for an orchard and a decommissioned swimming pool to get us thinking.
