Earth Day Volunteer Day

  • FCE Greenhouse at Long Hill Reservation (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Time 9am-2pm | Rain Date: Sunday, April 28, 2019

Help out by getting our greenhouse ready for spring!  Upgrade our aquaponics system, help prepare our outdoor growing beds , or help transplant our seedlings.  Come for an hour or the full time.  Food will be provided.  

  1.   Greenhouse Projects

    1. Aquaponic System 1 Upgrade: Currently, the 250 gallon plastic tank sits about 1 foot in the ground and is cracked and needs replacement. Tasks for this project will include:

      1. Empty remaining water from tank and transfer large-mouth bass to another tank temporarily

      2. Dig out the cracked tank and remove

      3. Dig/level out the tank footprint

      4. Install new 250 gallon plastic tote tank

      5. Fill with water

      6. Add fish/restart pump

      7. Install painted insulated blue wall around fish tank

    2. Roll up and Secure Sides of Greenhouse: Spring is here! At least a 2-3 person job, tasks will include:

      1. Untying colored rope through eye hooks and each side and removing rope

      2. Roll each side up and secure

    3. Planting Seeds*:  We have lots of native herbs, flowers, and leafy greens to plant directly into the ground as well as into trays. Echinachea, purple coneflower, chives, anise hyssop, and more!

       

  2. Outside Greenhouse Projects     

    1. Deconstruct small wooden enclosure near entry door to greenhouse to then create beautiful garden beds:  This enclosure was built just outside our greenhouse to weather proof our generator that was a requirement to have on site in order to raise large-mouth bass.   We are transitioning to including only Coi fish in our systems, so will not need a back-up generator.  Our goal is to transform this entry way into a beautiful native shade garden. Tasks will include:

      1. Using drills and hammers, removing all screws from wood to completely deconstruct structure. Create a reuse pile of wood

      2. Remove Generator

      3. Rake and prepare soil; add compost

      4. Plant native shade plants for small garden on both sides of entry door (left and right)

    2. Get our Garden Ready/Native Garden Planting: Herbs, perennial flowers

      1. Tending to our gardens around the greenhouse will include raking, preparing soil using shovels and adding compost, following a garden plan to plant seeds and transplants, tubers, bulbs.
