Corraling free mulch for gardening

October 10, 2010

Sustainable Princeton and the Princeton Environmental Commission are seeking 50 households in the Township and Borough to volunteer for a demonstration leaf corral project. Each household will receive free materials and instructions for installing a backyard leaf corral. The sides of the corral are typically 5′- 8′ in length and leaves are piled to a height of 3′ within the enclosure.  Leaf compost from the corral can be used as mulch or as a soil supplement for your gardens. Keeping leaves off the street improves safety and drainage along our roads, saves public money spent on collecting and disposing of leaves, and saves you time and effort in bagging leaves. To sign up, visit the Sustainable Princeton website. – Diane Landis
