About the project

To cut down Blackberry on the Nordel Embankment and dig up the roots. We hope to put the plants in distress so that come spring, they won’t be able to send out so many roots and runners, and it will get easier and easier each year to keep them at bay. This task involves using tools such as shovels, picks, pitchforks, clippers, and loppers. We will try to work smart and not hard to triumph over the stubborn blackberry bushes together.
