Blackberries and Thanksgiving

No one associates blackberry invasion with a big Thanksgiving day feast. This is not to suggest a cranberry alternative. The issue is saving MCGO’s East Orchard from a complete blackberry takeover.

MC2 gives ‘thanks’ to the Waldorf school system for their weekly dedication. The East Orchard in Meadowbrook was isolated during the pandemic due to a preCovid mulch dump gone wild. Loppers and gloves did the trick.

Friendly teamwork of the different grades in this late Fall activity have been handled very well. Talk and ‘lop’, prepping the recovered space for the goal of plum domination. We’re thankful for the intentional stewardship of Waldorf Schools and the common goals of food security for all.
