Weed-Pull Workday: Native Seed Farm

IRC Volunteers and members of the public are invited to help at this weed-pulling event at the Farm! Our tasks are to be determined, but we’ll be tackling whatever weeds and invasive species are a top priority such as Russian thistle or tree tobacco. Weeding, clearing, cutting, digging– whatever it takes to keep our farm plots neat and free of any unwanted flora!

Activities may include bending, stooping, crouching, squatting, long periods of standing, reaching, pulling, grabbing, and pushing.

Gloves, tools, and snake chaps will be provided for use at the Native Seed Farm – however you are more than welcome to bring your own tools and gloves if you wish! Please remember to wear closed-toed shoes, long pants, and to bring your own water bottle and sun protection.

Working with us at the Native Seed Farm is a great way to grow your community and cultivate knowledge about local plant and wildlife! Absolutely no experience or special equipment required! 

Reviewing the 1-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this Level 2 activity. Activities may include bending, stooping, crouching, squatting, long periods of standing, reaching, pulling, grabbing, and pushing.
