Master Gardener Volunteers are muscling their way though a mountain of mulch this week.  They are spreading the mulch in the paths winding through the Pitt County Arboretum and in some of the planting areas.  The mulch used is from the Pitt County Transfer Station which is available for all residents.  Call 902-3350, Option #1 for the Scale House to find out availability and hours of loading.   The cost is now $5.00 a load - quite the bargain.  Remember to take a tarp to cover your mulch before leaving the Transfer Station.  To read more about mulch and compost,  the how and why and when, click COMPOST AND MULCH for links to all this information and more.

Oh so pretty!
