Golden Hour will be sponsoring two workshops in the first week of April. We’re excited to be working with our partners at Garber Park Stewards on a couple of local workshops. Both workshops will be fully outdoors and the public is always invited. We always recommend an RSVP to ensure we’ll have enough tools and handouts. Please email lech atsymbol goldenhour.org.
#1) Workshop on invasive plants: This is a basic workshop that will help students understand invasives, their impacts, and how to create stewardship projects that meet your goals. Specifically catered for middle-school students at Royce School, Oakland. Here’s the handout providing some basic information on invasives and also a native plant list of Garber Park. We hope to use this workshop as a chance to have adults and instructors talk about their experience with this project and working with students.
#2) Workshop on Sudden Oak Death: This advanced workshop will talk about the state of the science regarding Sudden Oak Death. We will translate our knowledge into stewardship as we talk about how to deter the spread of SOD at Garber Park. The SOD Workshop PDF handout can be downloaded here.
