Composting at The Plot
Compost is decomposed organic material, such as leaves, grass clippings, and kitchen waste. It provides many essential nutrients for plant growth and therefore is often used as fertilizer. Compost also improves soil structure so that soil can easily hold the correct amount of moisture, nutrients and air.
The Plot is a learning laboratory for Library patrons to sow, grow, and share using sustainable gardening practices. Each gardener is the author of their own plot, fostering life in a dense urban area.
The Plot is a community garden open to all patrons of the library from sunrise to sunset. The garden is tended by member-patrons that applied via lottery to have a free plot. Please do not pick from the garden if you are not a member. Everyone is allowed to enjoy the garden space respectfully and watch it grow.
