This soil is for the Virginia A. Cory Community Garden only. Please use in both personal community garden beds and the donation-based garden beds. See below for recommendations.

  1. Keep in mind that some folks will not be installing this soil until spring 2022. Use what you can and please remember to share.
  2. If you have a cover crop down, this would be a great time to cut it back to three inches or pull it completely out. Leave the discarded material in your bed and then proceed to cover it with three inches of mushroom soil.
  3. For our donation-based garden beds we will be filling in with three inches of soil over the drip line and then covering that with burlap. Two beds are complete. Marie will be putting together a group for this ongoing project so please sign up through her.
  4. The soil is currently covered in two yellow tarps. Please carefully and tightly reapply the tarp after use.
