Calling All Acorns

By on September 25, 2014 in News, Notes from the Nursery Manager

I am a lazy person.









Always have been, always will be.  That doesn’t mean I can’t get many things accomplished.  I pace myself, and I know how to tactfully get other people to do things for me.

I’m calling on you again.  All eleven of you.  Well, at least the seven of the eleven who aren’t “wards of the state” as they say.







As you know OVLC is currently attempting to restore the Meadow Preserve to an oak wonderland.








One crucial ingredient has been hard to come by, as the drought has put the hurt on our oaks the last few years.









Praise be, there seems to be a relative abundance this year.  We could use both coast live oak and valley oak acorns and I’m beseeching you to do my gatherin’.  No need to be gluttonous, don’t want to anger these guys.














But if you could fill a paper bag, a sunday bonnet or a paint can we would be much obliged.  You could drop it off at the nursery on Besant Road if you like.  If you would rather not deal with me, (a plight to which I could not be more sympathetic) then drop it off at OVLC on Old Baldwin Road.

Please don’t slip them through the mail slot.
