The Lunchbox - Community Meal and Sheet Mulching Workshop at Peace of Earth Farm

43 West Griggs Rd
Albany, VT

Sheet Mulching Demonstration and Free Lunch at Peace of Earth Farm

11 am- Sheet Mulching Demonstration.  Come see how we make new garden space for next year without tilling or digging.  If you'd like to help, come prepared to handle mulch and compost.  

Noon- Hot Soup provided by the Lunchbox made with chicken and produce grown on the farm

Anyone interested in a tour afterwards is welcome to stick around. This is a family friendly event- feel free to come for any part of the day.

Sheet mulching involves covering the ground with a barrier layer that will break down within a season (cardboard or newspaper) topped with composted manures and mulch layers.  This smothers weeds, adds fertility and keeps the soil covered.  

Free to the public and kids welcome!Donations encouraged to support our work. This event is sponsored by The Lunchbox, as part of Green Mountain Farm-to-School. Please contact Kathryn at khansis@gmfts.org for more information, or check out on facebook at www.facebook.com/thelunchboxvt
