BHRI: April Activities
BHRI gives an ecological restoration/restoration economics presentation at The Sonoran Institute for staff and restoration partners in the community. Friends of Sonoita Creek awarded BHRI $500 toward developing a restoration and recon tool kit and library for use by staff and partners.
Over 100 giant sacaton plants were salvaged from a private landowner’s property along Sonoita Creek, just east of Patagonia. The area was being converted into orchard production, and the grasses will be stored in a shallow bed and re-planted in a restoration site [likely The Nature Conservancy] pre-monsoon summer 2013.
A group of visiting Windsong high school students of permaculture, social justice, and borderlands politics gathered at Deep Dirt to build rock structures, and to learn about food production challenges in the southwest.
