Talk to Rebecca if you would like to volunteer in the community garden!
Here compost is being spread over winter rye which is then tilled under. This provides lots of organic nutrition for the soil. Rye is one of the plants known as ‘nitrogen fixers’ because they distill nitrogen (a major ingredient of fertilizer,) from the air and store it in nodules along their roots, where it can nourish the soil and the plants. Unlike commercial fertilizers, it is stable and will not be washed out into our waterways, causing algae blooms.
