Thanks to everyone for your replies on my mulch question. I ended up
straddling the two alternatives (to separate the mulch from the leaves or
not) and took out five 13-gallon trashbags of bark mulch, raking the rest
into the beginnings of a giant compost pile with the leaves and a few table
scraps, and breaking the rake near the end of it (it was a real cheapo given
to me by my parents.
Next question: In my biointensive minifarming class my final project, due
Wednesday, is to design a permaculture plan for a community garden. How
would you start something like that, especially in the mid-Atlantic area?
Part of the project is to make the argument that a community garden must be
completely organic. People can't just do what they want with their plots
beyond limits. They shouldn't be able to use chemical fertilizer (except
possibly as a one-time addition to get the garden going), they shouldn't be
able to use pesticides or Roundup to kill stuff, etc. I figured the best
people to ask about that are community gardeners. How would you start that
