Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District

Wetherby Edible Forest Site Preparation Party

  • June 28, 2014
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Wetherby Park, 2400 Taylor Drive, Iowa City

Enjoy a summer morning amongst neighbors and friends while mulching the remaining half of the emerging Wetherby Edible Forest. The first half of this public orchard was mulched by diligent volunteers in April. We will now finish the mulching, let the soil marinate for the rest of the year, and begin planting next spring.


Come for 30 minutes or the entire 3 hours; any amount of time will be greatly appreciated and beneficial.


Activities planned include site tours with discussion of the various nuts, berries, fruits, and herbs that people can look forward to harvesting once the orchard is established. A variety of homemade snacks, herbal teas, and free seeds will be provided. The Master Gardeners will answer gardening questions and provide handouts.
