BIG SUCCESS…Thank You Volunteers for planting the Juanita Woodlands Deer Meadow

A huge thank you to the 50 volunteers that worked in Juanita Woodlands to create a deer meadow on Saturday, September 27. Currently the deer frequent a grassy area that is slated for development. This will ensure they have a place to go and keep them off Juanita Drive and out of your yard. The volunteers worked in 10 ft by 10 ft plots. The process was to grub the ground about 4 inches deep. King County had the soil tested and determined about 2 lbs of lime per plot was needed. The lime was spread with hand held spreaders and lightly raked it into the soil. This was followed with a mixture of grass seed mixed with small amounts of fescue and clover. This was followed by a fertilizer. and lightly raked in.

We would also like to send a big thank you to GO NATIVES NURSERY and the KRUCKEBERG BOTANIC GARDEN both in Shoreline. They donated some native plants and gave us some at big reduced prices.

Once again, a huge thank you to all who helped make this event a huge success.
