On to the experiment - at one of my presentations, someone had asked if the paper I make from invasive plant species would take root if planted, so I decided to put it to the test. I planted pieces of phragmites, reed canarygrass, and garlic mustard paper and after two months of keeping the soil moist and setting them in the sun......nothing grew. The paper pieces had simply turned to mush. If anyone has suggestions for another method or experiment, I'm all ears.
Over the next few weeks I'll be participating in the following events. If you're in that neck of the woods, drop by and say hello!
Oct. 9 - Dessert with Discussion, 7 - 9 p.m., at Kellogg Biological Station in Hickory Corners
Oct. 21 & 22 - Arts & Eats Tour at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary in Augusta - details below
