Basically what we see here is that a ton of perennials were planted and there was manure, cardboard, and hay mulch applied around the new perennials so that they could beat the lawn grass and what not.

    I don’t know if this comment will show up or be seen.

    When the warm season comes I’d like to survey this site again and see how everything is doing. I visit the garden throughout the summer and am often unsure of what exactly is growing there. I’m so glad to find this list of what was put there.

    A group of us are going to be creating a small food savanna in northeast urbana. We’ll meet on the site at 2314 n. high cross rd. at 1 PM Feb 23rd.

    Here is the Facebook group.
    This FB group is also a place for people to communicate about any permaculture projects in Champaign-Urbana.
