Long Shadow Fields is one of the farms producing native seed for restoration and to benefit pollinators in the Rogue Valley. Join us for a day of planting several native species into seed-increase rows on the farm.
We’ll use rotating teamwork to transfer plugs from greenhouse trays to the rows. You’ll learn about each of the native species we’re planting, and you’ll be contributing directly to expanding pollinator habitat and restoration efforts.
Please bring weather-appropriate clothing, sun protection, water, garden gloves, and a hand trowel (Also a gardener’s kneeling pad if you have one).
DIRECTIONS: You’ll come through Talent, past the schools, and turn onto Wagner Creek Road. About 2 miles up you will turn right onto Yank Gulch/Holton Rd. It wraps around a fallow field, then you quickly come to where Yank Gulch turns left up the hill – stay on Holton! Long Shadow Fields is the first house on the left, 569 Holton Rd. Yellow house, yellow barn, freshly tilled field, can’t miss it!
Avoid parking directly on (narrow) Holton Rd. Plenty of parking in the circle driveway or through the gate and up to the barn yard.
