Clover, a beneficial ground cover, supports bees.

Can you tell the difference between a weed and a native wildflower?  Do you want to learn?  Come to the Weed Hunt, Pull, & Toss in the play area on Sunday April 15th.

It’s one of many fun activities that make up CV Earth Day Fest, happening Sunday in the Community Room at 230 Jay Street from 1pm to 4pm.  The Recycling and Sustainability Committee invites CV residents to play interactive games, see exhibits, drop off old cell phones, print cartridges, batteries — and WIN door prizes.

Weed Hunt, Pull & Toss: What It Is

  1. Participants of all ages (in teams) will search the play area for weeds, flagging plants and growth that they suspect is a non-native, undesirable weed.
  2. Judges will help determine which plants are weeds to pull or dig up, and which ones are native plants, pollinator-supporting wildflowers that help garden food grow by attracting butterflies and other helpful pollinators.
  3. Participants will dig and pull non-native weeds (Note: There will be worms!)
  4. In a free-throw style game, players will toss weeds into a brown compost collection bin. Best shots win prizes!

CV Earth Day Fest takes place Sunday April 15 from 1pm to 4pm; The Weed Hunt will be held from 2:30 to 3pm outside in the play area.  Hope to see you there!
