Volunteers Make the Sheridan Food Forest a Reality

(Sheridan, Wyo.) – The Sheridan Food Forest Committee spent the last two weekends planting fruit trees, berry bushes, grape vines and other food-producing plants at Thorne Rider Park. Their goal is to make the site a free source of healthy natural food for local residents.

They arrived at 8:30 AM and had weeded the entire fence line, moved rocks, dug a trench, planted 20 grape vines and 100 asparagus crowns, and applied compost and water by noon!
