Successful work day at the OSU 4-H Center

Posted by & filed under Native Plant Gardening.

On Sunday, August 29th, Wild Ones Columbus members Bethany Richetti, David Kennedy, Amanda Reuter, David Williams, and board member Cecelia Jokerst worked hard to weed, edge, mulch and replace plants at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the Ohio State University campus.

This native plant garden was planted in 2018 by the Wild Ones Columbus chapter, and maintained by chapter members since then. If you would like to get involved planting native gardens in your community, we’d love for you to join our chapter!

Another great plant sale!

We had a record plant sale this year– even during a pandemic! Thank you to everyone who stopped by. We appreciate your compliance with the adjustments we had to make due to the COVID-19 situation. A big shout-out to Kathy and Don Reuter who made sure our set-up was social distancing-friendly, and to all our other volunteers who helped make this sale a success. We hope you all enjoy watching your plants grow and support native wildlife. See you next year for another one!

Members Carolyn Turner, Cecilia Johnson, Joe Bricker, Richer Maloeuf, Gail Santner and Cecelia Jokerst have been busy! You may remember that our chapter planted native plants by the OSU 4H building last spring. Earlier this month, this group pulled weeds, deadheaded and mulched so that it would look good for an upcoming symposium being held there.
An extra bonus, spotted by Cecelia Jokerst when she stopped by to water sometime later, were the monarch caterpillars on the butterfly weed! As we know, “if you plant it, they will come”. A big thanks to these volunteers!
