Audubon Society Native Plant Service Trip:
What do you get when you cross a team of investment accountants and 10,000 native plants in pots? Hyper-masculine competition over native plant carrying capacity. Two in a hand, three in a hand, even four: every possible technique was implemented, tested, and optimized. While I was staggering lopsidedly, carrying four potted deer ferns in one hand, I glanced over my shoulder and saw a beautiful sight: set against a chaotic forest scene, rows and rows of newly organized native plants stood tall, ready for planting. Thank you to my fellow Posties for bringing strong hands, open hearts, and wide smiles to the Audubon.
