Thanks to everyone who came out for the Central Park Community Garden Grand Opening this past Saturday Morning. Mother Nature Christened the park with a nice little shower during our ceremony and brought the sun out for the festivities and demonstrations. A fellow gardener brought her camera and caught some images and footage of the day.
Nutsedge Farm is a little piece of Land in Beech Island South Carolina, sharing pasture in production with Lushlife Nurseries. We use Organic Methods to control pests and problems. Nutsedge Grass is our most voracious weed and the namesake of the farm because we can grow a lot of it. To manage weed pressure, we have started experimenting with solarization, no-till, and heavy mulching methods. We use drip irrigation on most crops in production. We actively cover-crop and amend soil with compost to help build soil tilth. Our Bee yard is a few miles down the road in the swamp by the river. The Nutsedge Farm Blog is also an outlet for our other home experimentation and community outreach. Check out the GCO blog at gardencityorganics.blogspot.com
