Native Hedgerow at Terra Nova School of Science and Sustainability

The Problem

We plan to plant a hedgerow along the western side of our small urban farm school.

Our Plan

We will plant approximately 400 native shrubs and trees to provide pollinator habitat and replace invasive blackberries with a healthy native habitat. Our 120 students will start by clearing out the blackberries and other invasives. We will then sheet mulch the small hillside they are on. We will pot up and grow plants obtained from the local Metro organization until they are large enough to be planted in the ground. Finally we will put all the plants in the ground and wait for our cute little pollinator friends to come frolic with us and help our crops grow.
