The SCA Manchester crew stayed local for their final project of the event season. They arrived at Nutts Pond expecting a stormy day but instead found sunshine. The crew quickly geared up prepared themselves to take on the planting project to stabilize two of the pond's main banks. Nutts Pond is a small urban park located in southern Manchester which provides a great escape from the hubbub of the city life. The park is packed with families gathered on weekends and during the week people unwind in the fresh air during lunch.
Eight SCA Manchester members with their two crew leaders worked diligently alongside Rob Robinson, Manchester City Park's Manager, all day to till the soil in preparation for blueberry and dogwood plants. They planted nearly 50 plants on the banks and distributed mulch for further stabilization and visual appeal.
