Plant Rescue for The Forest Project

Plants were rescued from the woods, and from the  garden around the farmhouse.  The rescued plants were given to neighbors and taken home by volunteers.  Daylilies, peonies, camellia and forsythia were sold to raise funds for the Forest Project. Seeds will be used to make installation pieces, incorporated into encaustic work and propagated for planting.
