“Every member has a different situation from which we can learn,” said Northway. “One person may have a fern problem and another too much beech. The third person might not have encountered either of these, but is besieged by ironwood or thornapple on his or her property.” The committee finds that brainstorming and problem solving by people with multiple talents results in great accomplishments. The turnout of workers varies from 6 to 16, with friends and family of NYFOA members welcome.

“We’ve found this Work Co-Op program to be very beneficial and enjoyable,” Carole Northway, a committee member said. “Many hands make for a lighter load. We urge all NYFOA chapters to try the project. They may find a new way to connect with their members.” Barbara Tucker is a member of the NFC of NYFOA and editor of their chapter newsletter.
