Battlefords Community Garden Update

Posted by on Feb 1, 2014 in News |

This year’s community garden was a success–and a great learning experience! We tried 2 methods of chemical free quack grass reduction; both were effective.

One method we tried was placing clear plastic staked over areas with lots of quack grass growth for 3 months. The other option was putting layers of cardboard with a thick layer of bark mulch for several months around the perimeter.
