Rake and Take

Do you want leaves for your compost piles or gardens?  Do you have extra leaves, bagged and ready to go that you just don't need or have room for anymore?  As the Rake and Take Coordinator for Howard County Master Gardeners I will assist in finding and matching those that want leaves with those that have leaves.  Leaves provide a wonderful carbon amendment to your compost piles, acts as a great soil mulch and temperature stabilizer in your gardens and if left on your gardens, will break down to give you a rich, healthy soil.

See our Rake and Take flier for complete information.
