2008 Stewardship Season

Welcome to the 2008 Stewardship Season.

At long last, Spring is here and I can revive my blog about the Riverdale Community Stewardship program. It's great to be back after such a long and harsh winter.
Tonight was orientation for the Community Stewardship program and the turnout was very good, almost double from last year. We got about a dozen stewards who signed up for the Riverdale Farm site and it's a great start. We begin the work next week and we expect that more people will probably show up.

This year, we're starting the season earlier and our first task will be to start pulling garlic mustard. This is the best time of the year to tackle it because the ground is still soft and it's easy to pull. It's also a good way to start the season without exerting ourselves too much at the beginning.
