The Duck Truck Composting workshop will lead off Massaro Community Farm’s 2013 organic land care series that will cover nurturing backyard pollinators and planting an edible landscape, among others. While reservations for this first workshop are not required, calling (203) 736-1053 to hold your spot will help us in planning.
The Duck Truck Composting is the brainchild of Alexis Wilcox, a teacher, master gardener and composter who offers a host of landscaping services, including light chain-sawing, chicken coop building and garden layout and installation. The Duck Truck, a traveling compost workspace based in Hamden, was born when Alexis affixed a number of rescued plastic ducks to the outside of the truck. Now, Alexis makes numerous appearances throughout the year educating both kids and adults on the ease and benefits of diverting our green scraps to the compost pile for repurposing. Alexis is also a big proponent of using worms to eat your compostable materials.
Massaro Community Farm is a non-profit farm on a 57-acre parcel of land in Woodbridge, Connecticut, 15 minutes northwest of New Haven. Our mission is to keep farming, feed people, and build community. Our vision is to enhance the quality of life for generations to come. Our full programming calendar and details can be found at www.massarofarm.org.
Just want to thank you for the GORGEOUS job you did in our yard on Wednesday. The bed, edged with stones, looks beautiful. I was so surprised and excited when I saw it. Thanks again. You do beautiful work!
Best regards, Kate
We just have to thank you for rescuing our efforts to start a Children’s Garden at Troup School. We almost gave up. We had been promised or offered rototill help from the school, the neighbors and other places but in the end, 24 hours before the second graders descended with trowels, seedlings and seeds, you and only you came through to soften the soil and work in the compost. It was like magic. A miracle. An angel with a rototiller instead of a harp.
In great appreciation,
Eileen O’Donnell, the other Chapelseed gardeners, the children, and families of Troup School.
