Permaculture Mulching Technique

Here is an interesting write up from Regenerative.com with directions on how to lay a good 
sheet permaculture mulch, in 9 easy steps. 

Shar-Care sells straw, and I've seen bales for sale in the Comox Valley area, take the scenic route from Campbell River to Comox and watch for signs.  Or just enjoy the scenery.

TCGS Choreboard

Last year, members provided input on how to ensure participation in the maintenance and care of our community garden.  It was pretty much a balance on whether to have more frequent work parties, or for members to take on specific, ongoing garden chores.  The society decided on a hybrid plan.  We came up with 18 general chores, and our work parties will be project focussed.  Here's our chore board, a modge-podge of photos clipped from West Coast Seeds' 2016 catalogue, with hooks and cards in place making it easy-peezy for members to select a chore.
