  • Keep your leaves and use as compost, mulching

    Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fell swoop.  
    We rake and pile and they jump. I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy: adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer.  
    At the farm, raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.

    “It’s an awesome way to give kids around the world stuff they normally never get,” organizer Dawn Arnold said.
    Arnold said the effort collects shoe boxes filled with items for kids.
