A local tree trimming company has agreed to dump its shredded tree trimmings on the property.
Below are guidelines for using these shredded trimmings.
Note in particular that these are "green" vs "aged" wood chips so are for use OUTSIDE the gardens only.

1. Green tree trimmings are to be used on the outside of the garden only. As the green material breaks down, it takes nitrogen from the soil, creating a possible nitrogen deficiency for garden crops. So keep it away from crops.

2. Green trimmings should be used for weed control, dirt and run-off control. It needs to be 2-4" deep. Priority of use:
.....a. around outside perimeter of garden fence (3 feet wide if possible)*
.....b. around structures such as compost bins, benches, under the BYGP sign for weed control
.....c. under pepper tree for run-off and weed control
.....d. high use areas such as paths, depending on texture (the mulch from Miramar is probably better)
