Our spring planting has been a great success. We started on March 28th when 13 Restoration 1.0 chestnuts were planted in a forested area at the Catoctin Quaker Camp in Thurmont. Then on Saturday, April 4th, seven hardy souls planted 134 B3F1s and controls in freezing weather at the State Highway Administration orchard near Hampstead. On April 7th at Ft. Detrick in Frederick, thirteen volunteers helped plant about 80 B3F3s, and on April 10th students from Holton-Arms School in Bethesda planted 172 B3F2 seeds at the WSSC seed orchard on Triadelpia Lake Road. Lastly, on April 11th six incredible volunteers planted an additional 340 B3F2 nuts in the WSSC seed orchard. For photos and details about our recent plantings visit our Photo Gallery.
