Photos showing Buckthorn Prep and Installation

Jane B. McWilliams sent us a great set of pictures showing how the buckthorn goes from weed to art:

Jim Proctor, the artistic facilitator of the Buckthorn Menace, was working this afternoon with community members and St. Olaf students to create the installations on the south side of the Old Main hill.

The teamwork and the process for creating the installations are great community builders. (Most of the photo documentation I've seen so far focus on the rooting out of the pesky plants - this one aspires to show how they are transformed into art.)

Many thanks to Jane for her photos - remember: Northfield.org is citizen journalism. If you write it/photograph/record/whatever, we'll publish it.
