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, and 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.
