First day at the garden

Hi flog!

Today Team Echinacea met at the garden for a day full of exciting meetings and orientation. I got in around 8 to start learning my way around the Plant Science Center, and then Gretel, Stuart, Lea, Kristen, and I met to recap the summer and talk about goals for the fall. We started planning our trips back to Minnesota to finish up field work and burn a few of the experimental plots. Before lunch, we got demonstrations by a few of the volunteers of the ACE protocol, including how to clean Echinacea heads, count achenes, and randomize achenes.

After lunch we continued meeting to discuss project ideas and talk about our weekly schedules. We’re all pretty ambitious with our ideas and goals for the fall, but Stuart believes it’s possible. Can’t wait to get started!
