Event Details

It’s time to get your garden beds ready!

Edible Brattleboro is excited to start off our season with a Sheet Mulching Workshop and to teach you the standard procedure with which we build our garden beds.

Masks & social distancing required! 🙂

Here is an abbreviated list of the 7 Wins of sheet mulching:
1. To restore and maintain a diverse and robust soil ecosystem.
2. To create a soil carbon sponge which drains well in wet conditions and..
3. holds more water in drought conditions
4. Creates a natural ongoing fertility in the soil requiring no synthetic fertilizer inputs.
5. Reduces need for pest and weed control. The rest can be done mechanically in most cases.
6. Produces more nutritious and tastier edible plant products.
7. Serves as short term carbon sink sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for about 12 years.
April 10th @ 11am in the backyard of 329 South Main St (on the corner of Oak Grove, next to the Little League Parking Lot).
