The 9,000 grass plugs we installed at the farm were grown at the MRC nursery from seed we collected from local wild populations.
With the cooperation of some friendly landowners and the hard work of restoration technicians and AmeriCorps volunteers, the MRC’s native grass seed farm has expanded by an acre! The seed produced by our farm will be used in future restoration projects in and around the Mattole watershed.
An organic grass farm requires lots of maintenance, and we could sure use your help! If you’d like to be updated on upcoming volunteer work days at the grass farm, or any of our volunteer events, send your contact information to email@example.com. The support of our community is what makes all of our work possible. Thank you!
Mulching and weeding are some of the routine maintenance tasks that will keep the grass farm healthy and productive.
