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!
Members Carolyn Turner, Cecilia Johnson, Joe Bricker, Richer Maloeuf, Gail Santner and Cecelia Jokerst h
ave 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!
