Spring Open House at
MacDaniels Nut Grove

May 10, 2014, 1pm -- 5pm

Come visit the 90+ year old grove planted by Professor Lawrence 
MacDaniels which features selected hickory and walnut varieties and a 
full demonstration of forest farming practices including mushroom 
cultivation, medicinal plants, an ornamental nursery, fruit production 
(paw paw and elderberry), and water management techniques including 
swales and hugelkulture piles.

Tours by professor Ken Mudge, who re-discovered the nut grove in 2002, 
will be offered at 1pm, 2:30pm, and 4pm. Try hands-on inoculation of 
mushroom logs and see grafting demonstrations. Taste nuts and enjoy an 
afternoon in the woods, which is adjacent to the East Hill Recreation 
Trail for longer hikes. Good fun for the whole family.

NOTE: The nut grove is located on steep terrain and requires a decent 
walk from parking to the forest. Those with limited mobility may have a 
hard time accessing the entrance and navigating the site. Please contact 
Steve at sfg53 at cornell.edu with questions regarding accessibility.
