Corrales Town Hall Gardens
12/13 FISCAL YEAR CHAIR(S):
Judy Jacobs, Chairperson, Elizabeth Herrlinger, Assistant Chairperson.
Corrales Town Hall, 4324 Corrales Road, Corrales, NM
NUMBER OF VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:
6 to 8 in the spring during cleanup
3 to 4 during the remainder of the year
TYPICAL MEETING TIME(S) DURATION:
Wednesday mornings - earlier when it's hot, later when it's cool. We usually work for about 2 hours.
BRIEF PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Volunteers plant and maintain the gardens, which surround the Village offices. The demonstration gardens contain over 100 species of drought-tolerant trees, shrubs, and perennials. The plants in these gardens prefer the clay soils of the valley instead of the sandy soils that dominate the area.
MAIN EDUCATION/TRAINING TASKS:
The gardens are labeled and located on public property, providing a resource for gardeners who have clay soil. The volunteers are also available to answer questions from visitors or Village employees when we are working in the gardens.
BENEFICIARIES OF THE PROJECT:
Corrales residents are the primary beneficiaries. Volunteers have an opportunity to practice pruning and planting skills, as well as share information with other master gardeners.
LIST ANY RESTRICTIONS OR SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
This is physical work, although, each person does what they choose to do.
