Work weekend at White Pine Camp June 18-20

From Carol Eichler.

I'm organizing another working weekend at White Pine Camp in the Adirondacks for the weekend of June 18-20, with an emphasis on adding plants to the garden.

Anyone who is interested in going this year should contact me by April 17 - our April meeting. Space is limited. Priority will be given to people who have not yet been there. We will stay for 2 nights - Friday and Saturday. It is a working weekend so we will plan to spend about a half day on Saturday working - doing fun stuff like weeding, planting, watering, mulching, etc. Between White Pine Camp and the George's we have a budget of $150 to spend on plants. Hopefully we can supplement this with plants from our own gardens and the seedling exhange or other donations. I'll gather together our notes on what seemed to do well. Last summer we found many plants survived that shouldn't have been hardy because of the heavy snow cover.

On the way up on Friday we will take a side trip to Seneca Hill Perennials for a tour of Ellen Hornig's wonderful gardens. (But the nursery will not be open so we can't buy plants.)

If you're interested in the trip or have questions, contact me: ceichler@twcny.rr.com or 607-387-5823.

I want to finalize this trip by the end of April. Last call for anyone wanting to go and stay at White Pine Camp. (I still have space).
