Leaf Humus & Pansy Sale - October 18th

If you've only just started composting your leaves or don't have leaf mold or leaf humus to get your garden winter-ready, fear not - the Keep Lakewood Beautiful Leaf Humus & Hardy Winter Pansy Sale has come to your rescue.

Keep Lakewood Beautiful, now in its 26th year of volunteer service toward keeping our community clean and improving its environment, is offering leaf humus and hardy winter pansies for sale on October 18th, from 9am to 1pm (or when everything sells out, whichever comes first) in the Old Stone House parking lot at Lakewood Park. Leaf humus, a product created when tree leaves biodegrade, is valued by gardeners as a soil amendment, mulch, and winter top coat for gardens, lawns, and trees, and pansies will bloom through the first frost and be one of the first bursts of color in your garden when spring arrives. The humus is pre-packaged in approximately bushel-sized bags for easy pickup. Proceeds from the sale go towards Keep Lakewood Beautiful's programs, including the Adopt-a-Spot program and tree stewardship programs. If the turnout rivals that of the spring sale, the humus will go quickly, so don't be too late!
