Friday, June 19, 5:30 pm – Invasive Plants Primer

The Trustees of Reservations ( will sponsor “Invasive Plants Primer for Homeowners and Volunteers” on Friday, June 19 beginning at 5:30 pm at Horsemunn Farm in Monson, Massachusetts.  Why is there such concern over these (often quite beautiful) plants? How can you get rid of them once they have gained a foothold in your yard? We will review some common local “invasives” and discuss some techniques for their control. There will be a walking tour of the farm to see the culprits up-close and, in honor of the solstice, the farm’s meditation labyrinth will be open for a pleasant meander. We will order takeout pizza or the like if there is enough interest.  Free to Trustees members, $5 suggested donation for nonmembers. To pre-register, and for directions, call 413-532-1631, x 13, or email
