Sheet Mulching Hands-on Workshop
Saturday August 8, 2009  9 to 12
Kit and Dennis Galvin’s Lawn

Sustainable Crown Hill is putting on a Sheet Mulching and Lasagna Gardening Workshop.  These are methods for converting lawn and other areas into the healthy soil and garden space the easy way.  This workshop is for both people wanting to learn and those who are ‘old hands’.   Bring your curiosity, questions, and experience to share.  Using layers of different materials including cardboard, straw, manure, burlap, and even feathers, we will put into practice what we’ve learned help to covert a lawn to future garden space.

Please wear  garden clothes and sturdy shoes.  Work or garden gloves will be a plus.

String Anyone?

Posted by on Jul 02 2009 | Tagged as: Announcements

I have an 18 lb spool of  1/16″, white, 100% cotton cording, which is basically, string.  I would be glad to share this with anyone who would like some.  Suggestions? – we are using it for our pole beans.  Use it if you do any sewing projects requiring cording.  Art projects.  Have your kids roll it up in smaller bundles and sell as a fund raiser.

How I came by this spool (and there are more spools for the asking):

The deliverer of compost for you gardeners, works at a well known local manufacturer of pillows and comforters. (Names are withheld in case someone cares about this.) They are now having their cording done in China.  She took 5 of these spools out of the garbage.  Each spool is probably 50 lifetimes supply of string.

Just give me a call- there is plenty to go around.
