Volunteers Make the Sheridan Food Forest a Reality

(Sheridan, Wyo) –  The Sheridan Food Forest Committee spent the last two weekends planting fruit trees, berry bushes, grape vines and other food-producing plants at Thorne Rider Park. Their goal is to make the site a free source of healthy natural food for local residents.

A group of young workers from Service Wyoming particularly impressed organizers on Friday, June 10th. They arrived at 8:30 AM and had weeded the entire fence line, moved rocks, dug a trench, planted 20 grape vines and 100 asparagus crowns, and applied compost and water by noon!

Throughout the heat of summer, watering the forest will be particularly important. If you are interested in volunteering or just have questions email Carol LeResche at
