COMMUNITY PLOTS WORK DAY

Please join us between 10am - 12pm on Saturday, October 22nd,
for our final Community Plots Work Day of the season.

The purpose of this work day is to clear your plot of any weeds and any plants that are no longer producing from the growing season. Please take home anything not attached in your plot and store it for the winter.

This is perfect timing to get your Winter cover crop planted, allowing it to germinate before the first frost. If you have not been able to coordinate picking the seed from Melody yet, it will be available to pick up and plant during the work day from the Advisory Group members.

If you do not want to plant a cover crop, you will still need to clear and mulch your plot, using organic material like lawn clippings (but not if your lawn is treated for weed control, pests or with inorganic fertilizer), chopped/mulched leaves, newspaper, cardboard and bale straw or pine straw.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
