Roma Community Garden is Alive in Summer and Winter! December, 5-6: A Weekend Adventure

We staked and mulched the trees we have planted last week and created drip line rings around them with rocks..

We weeded as much as we can and laid the chopped weeds on the soil. We laid cardboard on the ground as well and mulched on top.

We hadplanted trees on a slope area of the garden that we haven’t been using before. To ensure water retention for those trees, we created mounds around the trees and dug a waterway. We piled rocks inside the waterway in order to hold the soil.

We added vermicompost to areas that we didn’t use vermicompost before. We diluted some chicken manure and brewed it for a while before using it as fertilizer. We dusted the ground with a mixture of oak ashes and sulphur.

In the following days, we will seed the remaining ground areas with ground cover plants.
