King School Weed Warriors

King Elementary School’s Green Team joined us at Abernethy Creek last week to coffee bag some of our newly planted native trees and shrubs.

Students worked in pairs to stake coffee bags donated to SOLV around native plants to impede weed growth; the burlap sacks will provide an area around the plant that is relatively weed-free and thus, allows the plant to grow without its usual competitors.  The bags and the stakes that we use will biodegrade in a few years, so nothing is left behind.  The students worked hard and coffee bagged more than sixty plants.
