First Day of Leaf Collection, Saturday, November 14

This Saturday, November 14th, is the first day of Project LeafDrop and the last Garden Workday of the season. The Warren-St. Marks Garden has become part of the growing network of community gardens and greening partners who are helping take some of the City’s 20,000 tons of residential leaves out of the waste stream and putting them to good use making compost. The garden will be collecting leaves on the following dates: November 14, 21, 22 from 11am to 1pm. Master composters will be on hand to answer questions about composting and distribute literature. If you’d like more information about Project LeafDrop or if you’d like to volunteer to assist in the collection effort, please contact Pat McCarty by email.

And, don’t forget that Saturday is the last Garden Workday of the season. Just because its starting to feel like winter doesn’t mean there aren’t things do in the garden. Winter crops are looking great but there’s more to tend to. Come by at 10am for the general meeting or if you had a late night bender, sleep in a bit, show up when you can and someone will give you mindless garden task to take the edge off. Very therapeutic and less calories than a bloody mary!

In the Better Late then Never department, here are some photos from the Community Harvest Day which took place in late September.
