remember the paw paw seedlings? no? learn more here. they are ready to find a new home, and i’m looking for places for them to live. but i’m not looking to sell them, i’m looking to find folks that will care for them.
the deal is – i want paw paws growing in detroit that all have access to, so i’m trying to find folks that will plant them in public spaces and agreeing to take care of them and tell me where they are so i can check on them from time to time as they grow and eventually collect more seeds from.
idea locations would be shady spots on flood plans – I’m thinking river rouge park, eliza howell park, and belle isle. maple dominated forests all the better! a pair of trees needs to be planted at each site to insure better pollination. you would need to keep the little guys weed free and watered for the first year, and then they should be fine on their own. really not that much work.
if you want a couple of paw paw’s for yr yard and agree to be care taker for some wild paw paw’s i’m fine by that, i just want to make sure most of them go to places that everyone has access. shoot me an email to work out the details dirtysabot at gmail dot com.
