Tree Planting Field Day - West Sixth Farm

We’re partnering with West Sixth Farm, Kentucky State University and the Kentucky Division of Forestry to offer you a full day of tree planting instruction and guided nature hikes. Whether you’re planning a conservation, orchard or landscape project, we’ve got you covered. During this free, public event, we’re teaching:

  • Bareroot tree seedlings - with forestry tree planter and hand tools

  • Potted fruit trees - with handheld auger and hand tools

  • Live stakes (cutting) - by hand

We’re going to do more than just stick a few plants in the ground and say “make it look like that”. We’ll demonstrate best practices, common mistakes and provide you with our knowledge as experienced installers.

Staying true to our workshop format, the folks doing the training will also be the ones who are usually getting their hands dirty. Did you catch that? We’re training, not just talking.

We're going to provide you a well-rounded day that also includes guided nature hikes scheduled between the training stations and organized by Woods and Waters Land Trust. We’ll cover things like local nature, invasive plants and habitat management, but this is a great opportunity for you to bring questions about your projects and interests. On top of all that, the tap room will be open, and a food truck will be on site.
