Monday, April 4th from 9am-11am
Plans are to weed, divide the larger herbs for the upcoming plant sale, new plantings, feed the plants, spray the roses and spread mulch. Join us for homemade scones and apple juice.
One of our beds is raised for easy access…we'll be looking forward to seeing you!

Reminder . . .
“Invasive Species: What are They and Why are They a Problem?” will be the topic of a free program on Thursday, March 31, 5:00 p.m. at Dryer Hall, Arkansas State University, Mountain Home. ASUMH
Hellbenders Stream Team 821 and Friends of the North Fork and White Rivers invite the public to join them at 4:30 p.m. to view educational displays, enjoy refreshments and meet the speakers.
Invasive species can be anything from microscopic insects to 100-pound animals. They invade rivers, lakes and rural and urban land destroying native species, harming the environment, reducing land values, negatively impacting businesses and recreation, even threatening human and animal health.
Speakers will be Jimmie Barnett, Aquatic Nuisance Species Coordinator for Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and Shawn Hodges, ecologist with Buffalo River National Park.

Bull Shoals-White River State Park invites you to join them in celebrating the arrival of spring with the Ozark Wildflower Weekend on April 15 - 17. At 10 a.m. on April 16 join Master Naturalists Anita Hayden from the North Central Arkansas Master Naturalists program for a hike on the Big Bluff Trail to see what beautiful wildflowers are blooming.
The hike will begin at the Big Bluff Trailhead in Bull Shoals-White River State Park. Dress for the weather, wear comfortable shoes and bring water. The hiking trail is moderately strenuous, and hiking time is approximately 1 ½ hours.
At 2 p.m. join Hayden again for a hike on the Lakeside Trail at the Trail head on the east end of the Day Use area in Bull Shoals White River State Park.
This hiking trail is easy and approximately 1 ½ hours.

I am looking for some good quality top soil to put on a lawn.
I was given one resource of D & D Hauling in Yellville however they are out as well as Kelly Thomas.
If you have purchased topsoil in bulk recently and were satisfied with the cost and quality, I would appreciate if you would provide me with the name of the company where you purchased it from.
Thank you Carol Badsky firstname.lastname@example.org
The next Bull Shoals State Park PED will be Tuesday, April 5 @10am. Let's meet at the Trout Dock on the porch and eat some yummies and think about what herbs we might want to plant in the herb garden and what and where to post information on that garden. Hope to see you then. Betsy & Margareta
