Where did those beautiful boulders come from?

In 2007, Mark and Carol Lawall donated these to enhance the landscape. They hand selected and delivered them to the Demonstration Forest. Simone Smith, another longtime DF supporter and proprietor of The Educated Gardener, is shown here helping with placement.

A Place for Wheelbarrows and More

Nick Fortune, another longtime supporter and owner of Oak Country Lumber, donated and delivered this great tool shed in 2007. It was great to finally have a place to store tools onsite.

Moving Mountains of Mulch

Over the years since 1997, many wheelbarrows + wagons + tractors have moved mulch and more at the Demonstration Forest. Jeremy Lowney and his son Levi are shown working at the DF in 2006. Jeremy is one of several professional foresters who’ve contributed their time and expertise to help us.
