Land Conservation & Stewardship Manager Position

Green Spaces Alliance is accepting applications for a full-time Land Conservation & Stewardship Manager.  To apply, please visit our Job Opportunities page.

 Fall Gardening Tips:

  • Collect leaves for composting.
  • Spread fresh mulch for winter protection and to keep soil moisture even.
  • Plant the following directly by seed: radish, carrot, spinach, turnip, beets, lettuce, parsley, cilantro, mustard greens and onion (“sets” are typically planted in January).
  • Plant native wildflowers by seed before mid-November. Water often in the first few weeks and don’t let the soil dry completely. Taper your watering schedule after evidence of germination.
  • Start watching the weather for our first frost. Our average first day of frost is November 26th. Cover tender plants with row cover or old sheets.
  • Water your garden well before a freeze. Water-stressed plants won’t endure the cold as well.
  • Plant elbon rye in empty vegetable plots as a winter cover crop. Some gardeners report that root knot nematode problems are reduced or eliminated in subsequent plantings.
  • Begin enjoying your late summer plantings of broccoli, collard greens, swiss chard, squash, beans, cucumbers, pumpkins, peppers and tomatoes.
  • Don’t forget the herbs! They’re not only tasty they are darn good for you. Dry sage and rosemary for Thanksgiving stuffing and use fresh parsley in many holiday recipes.
