Talisman Farm plans beach cleanup
GRASONVILLE — Volunteers will gather at 9 a.m. April 22 and 23, wearing gloves and bearing shovels, to help clean up the beach at Talisman Farm, home of Talisman Therapeutic Riding.
The plantation features 3.5 miles of waterfront property and 350 feet of beach. Chesapeake Bay tides bring with them a variety of debris from passing boaters, which needs to be removed for the safety of horses, riders and visitors.
Volunteers will be joined by, of course, a horse. Catcher’s Dream Domino, a beautiful Paso Fino pinto horse, will be there to help. Owner Jonathan Shaw plans to ride her to the waterfront at low tide (around 1:15 p.m.) to assist in the removal of larger items, like barrels and tires.
“She’s small, but strong,” said Shaw. He said he will use a grappling hook and attach ropes to Domino to get the job done.
