Come enjoy the sunshine in the Meadow!

Organizers are looking for your help to prepare the Meadow for beautiful seasonal growth of native wild flowers and other grasses. Two dates have been set aside for this opportunity to make a difference:
     Friday, May 19
     10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
     Sunday, May 21
     1-4 p.m
Feel free to pick a day and let us know how long you can lend a hand. You can sign up by sending a note to Riccardo Prudenti, prudenti@k-state.edu.

You are needed!

I trust you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know we all are thankful for the Meadow at K-State, and Katie and I are very thankful to those supporting the project in various ways.


You are needed!

We have one more day in the Meadow for final clean-up of clippings — a much-needed task given that we weren’t able to complete this last week. We hope you can lend a hand between 1-3 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 4 to bring a close to the maintenance needs this year.

Feel free to come as is convenient for you during this 2-hour period. Lindsay will be renting a machine to handle final cutting beforehand. So all we’ll need is your hands and leaf rakes to gather and pile.

Dress appropriately, bring a hydrating beverage and a friend

Like last time, Varsity Donuts were provided for us. You might want to bring coffee or cocoa.
