community compost sites/dumps and garden refuse day.. scare the heck outta me. In fall i drive around town and pick up bagged leaves that folks have raked. but I would never accept any grass clippngs unless I knew the folks. too many folks will apply chems to their grass, but less do it to their maple/oak etc, trees. I have been to the spring lawn and garden waste days.. and shake my head at what is in those bags. dead critters and trash and who knows what chems. Altho i did find a spot where the cemetary dumps all those flower pots that folks leave at the graves. most of the stuff in the pots is the sterile potting mix so i use it as an additive to aerate the soil. tried using it as soil and it was too pourous. my 2 cents
I have a cpl truckloads of coniferous wood chips and needles.. my assumtion is they are very acidic.. even tho they are 2-3 yrs old.. I also have a huge truckload of deciduous wood chips that are only 1 yr old. I,m figgering that being 1 yr old, thier thirst for nitrogen has all but been abated? I will make raised beds with the deciduous chips (combined with manure) and use the coniferous for the walkways.
I would appreciate input on this as it will be my first attempt.. I will also use forest humus, but dont whether to use it as the top "soil" or incorporate/mix it into the deciduous chips.. most of my crops will be shrubs and small trees but i will plant a few veggies. being raised beds I can manipulate each bed and compare findings.

no.. I think "what is a gmo? or what good is GMO?" is a valid question. I hate GMO. Would not ..ever.. allow it on my place. there are others who welcome it.. purely their choice, but i wouldnt expend alot of energy to disuade them. In the end, the choice is thiers.

wow.. I have read every post in this thread. to me, your choice to use a GH or not to use a GH is just that, YOUR CHOICE. for someone to state that this is wrong or that is right,,, is just sanctimonious double talk,. the gods gave us the intellict to use our brains.. if we use it to feed ourselves or destroy our selves, we have only ourselves to blame. but to shoot arrows at those who do not do what WE do is, so, selfserving and hypocritical.
I guess i just dont understand the difference between being a self provider and being a communal feeder.
