Picking Berries, Making Jam, Clearing Trails

Eighteen workers participated in the Hermitage Jam workday on Friday, August 7. The blackberries are slow this year due to cool weather and there were relatively few picked (about 5 gallons). We made 13 pints of jam with the berries and will serve it at our meals until it runs out. The crew was also able to clear the second Prairie Prayer Garden and re-route a portion of the yellow trail to eliminate an eroding section.
