Weed Wrangle at Glen Leven Farm
March 4 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am CST
Join us as we partner with Weed Wrangle® and The Garden Club of Nashville to remove non-native species at The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm! This opportunity allows you to learn more about our 64-acre farm, which is not regularly open to the public.
- Volunteers will use uprooters, loppers, & shovels to remove bush honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) from our landscape so native species can thrive.
- We will have water (bring your own bottle if you can!) and work gloves on hand.
- We do recommend you dress in layers for the weather and wear closed toe shoes and long pants.
The Land Trust for Tennessee’s mission is “To preserve the unique character of Tennessee’s national and historic landscapes and sites for future generations.” Founded in 1999 by conservation-minded citizens, The Land Trust for Tennessee works with communities, landowners, families, governments, and partner organizations and businesses to identify and save important natural and historic places. We protect land through conservation agreements, donations of land, partnerships and stewardship. We work with landowners to establish best management practices for water quality, forest health and wildlife habitat. Through community conservation, our working farms and forests, scenic and historic landscapes, river corridors and special places can be protected for future generations. The shared vision of land conservation is the driving spirit and passion behind The Land Trust for Tennessee.
Weed Wrangle®, is a one-day, citywide, volunteer effort to help rescue our public parks and green spaces from invasive species through hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines and flowering plants.
