As an organic community garden, we wrote in the bylaws that pressure treated
lumber is NOT permitted.  We couldn't call ourselves organic if we allowed
it, so we don't.  There are many alternatives which have been mentioned on
the list and are probably available in the archives.  If you're going to eat
the food from the garden and/or have small children playing/helping, it's
best to avoid arsenic. . .
