This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


This month's project is: 3 Sisters Companion Planting and Building Mounds

Help us build mounds and plant several corn varieties for our 3 sisters demonstration (corns, bean, squash). We will discuss the benefits of companion planting, and will demonstrate a technique used by Native Americans. If we have time, we’ll also plant Texas Black Amber Molasses and talk about its history in the region (and on Herff Farm!). 

No experience required. For this project, volunteers should be able to bend and stoop to the ground for planting. Please dress for the weather, and consider a hat, sunscreen, and bug spray. Bring your own garden gloves, if you have them; if you do not bring them, garden gloves will be provided.

For groups larger than 5 people, please contact our volunteer coordinator Ariel Cummins at ariel@cibolo.org to make sure we have proper accommodations for you.
