What we'll doHelp by clearing out invasive plants like honeysuckle, knotweed, and porcelain berry.
Who can do itAnyone 16+

We’re kicking off a new project at the CGC: Treeforestation. Many of Cincinnati’s green spaces are overrun with invasive plants. As more and more ash trees come down, thinning our tree canopy, there is increasingly more room for invasive species (Japanese honeysuckle, Japanese knotweed, Porcelain Berry) to take over and exclude our native plants and animals.

The first space we’re focusing on is Walnut Woods, a 10-acre property adjacent to Walnut Hills High School. We will be restoring it in collaboration with Walnut Hills High School, Cincinnati Parks, UC, the Evanston Community and more. This will be an ongoing project, and we could use your help!

Cooking classes in the garden, people gathered around food, and new boxes for our bees. It was a good day.

Last week, our young professional team enjoyed a Walk & Talk from our horticulturist, Greg Torres, in Buttercup Valley Natute Preserve. We had a great turnout, and will definitely be having another one soon. Be sure to check out our next YP event as well, our Treeforestation workday on August 24th at Walnut Woods! ... See MoreSee Less
