Dear Gardening/Farmer Friends,


There will be several tons of plant material (seaweed/Eurasion milfoil) collected in the next few days from Lake Lansing…  potentially looking for a home…

Apparently it can be used as a mulch and has advantages in that the seeds can’t germinate on land.  See excerpt below from

The harvester could potentially deliver quantities… (6 cu yards est?) in the Lansing area.  If you have an interest, please contact [log in to unmask]    and cc [log in to unmask] if you don’t mind.

PS  My hunch is that the nutrient benefits of mulch would far outweigh any potentially trace herbicides present in the seaweed, but I can’t find much info on this.
