Thanks so much to Nicolas Gutierrez and Travis Bartlett from Antioch Boy Scout Troop 153 who came out yesterday and helped to clean up around our rice field and tear down the old greenhouses and weed those terrible thorny milkweed plants. Both Nicolas and Travis worked off some of their Boy Scout volunteer service hours to give us a helping hand.
Our organization is run with the help of volunteers. Anyone interested in helping out with our program please feel free to drop us an email and we are sure to have something that needs to be done. No experience is necessary, just a good heart and the love of the Delta and our environment. For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In other news, we are seeing some nice results with the nitrogen we added to the rice a couple of weeks ago. This side of the field is certainly a lot fuller already with the added nutrients. Testing over the next couple of months should be interesting to see what benefits the added nitrogen is making.
