Please go to the archives of this
listserve at email@example.com.
One you get there, please go to
the "Mailing lists" section,
you will fine a button for community garden
Once there, you can go back several years in our rather heated
on treated and untreated wood in gardens. Most of the
sensible heads on this
listserv are anti treated wood in gardens, but there
is one fine gardener who
says that the arsenic run off is minimal, according
to her scientist...
The exchanges go on and on, but read them.
suggestion - Why not use rocks or stone instead? The stuff is far
attractive and doesn't rot. Also brick beds last forever
Have a nice day,

What wood is suggested to be
used in a Community Garden? Some have said
use untreated wood, but the
replacement of this wood after it decays
would be costly. Others say
use treated wood to last longer, but the
issue of CCA comes to mind
when dealing with treated would.
suggestions? I think the argument could go either way.
