Maintenance Information

Thanks for volunteering to water! Our first tiny native forest is planted and it will take all of us to nurture these young saplings. Check out this video for information on watering our Miyawaki forest.

Watering Guidelines

  • Check the moisture present in the mulch and soil

  • Water the mulch in sections, being mindful of the hose to avoid dragging it over plants

  • If the mulch and soil are dry to the touch, or if the soil is not moist up to 2 inches deep, then water each plant for 10 seconds and each ‘staked’ sapling for 20 seconds

  • Use a stopwatch (or your phone) to keep track of the time spent watering each plant
