issue of the Friends of the
Farm newsletter is now available on the
Friends' website. Hard copies will go out soon to those who indicated they wish to receive the newsletter by mail.
In this newsletter, Roman Popadiouk discusses how trees grow in different environments, and regrow after severe damage. While the Arboretum provides many examples of how trees perform, Polly McColl reports on the tree planting experience at the Merivale Shelterbelt.
What trees exist in our landscape? How can we help track species and varieties?
A tour of the Arboretum is described that provided valuable lessons in observing and identifying, and posting data. Also, find out about the large number of moths that can be spotted at night in the Arboretum with an experienced guide.
Among other items, we are introduced to two young men who volunteered with the Friends in 2018 and we meet Annie Saunders, one of the earliest residents on the Farm, daughter of the first director.
