Great Monroe Leaf Drive!
Sat. Nov. 5, 2011 – 9:00 to 1:00
Meet at the Monroe Legion Hall

The “Sharing Gardens” and “Crafty Critters 4-H Group” are teaming up to rake, and collect leaves to use as mulch in the gardens. Leaves are a great, under-utilized resource in that the provide many nutrients and organic matter to the soil making it more fertile. By composting leaves, it also keeps them out of the landfill and burn-piles.

Ways you can help:
  • Join in the fun! Come to the Monroe Legion Hall by 9:00 with a rake and any lawn/leaf bags you wish to donate to the project.
  • Let us rake your leaves. We’ll be moving through Monroe systematically and will get to as many houses as we have time for. There is no charge for this service. If you wish to make a donation, it will go to support the 4-H group.
  • Rake your own leaves and leave them on your curb – for pick-up Sunday Nov. 6
  • Continue to rake your leaves and bring them to the gardens behind the Methodist Church at any time. Just leave them (ha!) by the garden gate.
Please: No trash, dog doo, gravel or walnut leaves (toxic to plants).

We realize that, this first year, we won’t be able to reach all of Monroe. We welcome your leaf donations that you bring us on your own.

Great Monroe Leaf Drive!
