NURSERY POTTING AND DIVISIONS
At the NPSF Nursery (aka the Holding Beds) we propagate plants and store salvaged plants for use in future revegetation and green stormwater projects.
To maintain healthy plants, we organize regular work parties, co-sponsored by Thurston County Steam Team, at our nursery throughout the year.
These work parties also provide a great backdrop to get connected with our board members, to catch up with friends and fellow volunteers, and make new friends as well - it always proves to be a good time for all!
The agenda for each work party varies: we work to propagate native and water-wise plants, re-pot plants that have outgrown their pots into larger ones, transfer bare-root plant-stock and bulbs to pots, weed and organize already potted plants, keep the walkways clean and safe, and additional projects as needed. Occasionally we clean out the tool sheds, sharpen tools, and take inventory.
