Weeding & Mulching

 

How does the garden behave in the heat of the summer?  We will be sweating alongside the plants helping to keep them cool and comfortable by using various time-tested techniques.

Hands-on work will include our favorite summer tasks: weeding and mulching. We will engage in mindful weeding as we identify our unwanted friends and chat about their uses before plucking them from the garden. Many weeds are great for eating and healing and knowledge of these particulars will (hopefully) serve as motivation for eradicating and processing them throughout the growing season. Once we’ve tidyed the garden beds, we will lay a thick layer of mulch to inhibit weed regrowth, maintain moisture, and encourage worm activity at the soil’s surface.
