Progress on the Milam Wildscape Project

By Catherine Johnson

Volunteers from our chapter have been hard at work! The Milam Wildscape Project that we’ve reporteed on before is progressing quite quickly.

Getting ready to make a fence.

The team has managed to install fencing, arrange some of the cool metal structures at the site, and installed gates so people can get into the garden, but hungry animals stay out.

Here you can see the sturdy new raised path to the chicken house and future raised beds.

El Camino Real Chapter member Larry Kocian is designing pathways and garden plots. He knows the pathways need to be handicap accessible, so they will be wide and smooth.

The next phase is planting. We are now beginning to gather plants.

How are those animals?

So glad you asked! The beautiful kittens and all those hundreds of chicks are growing up at the farm. If you’re looking for chickens, it’s a great time to get some!

I’m also fine, thanks for asking.

The heritage Rio Grande Turkeys are not allowed to roam now, like they used to, as they are old enough that they would run off to make a nest and not come back at night.  We don’t want that!

We can always use more volunteers. Check out Bird and Bee Farm for more information.
