North Shore Edible Bike Path 2/16/14

Full moon Edible Bike Path Workday! We had about 15 community volunteers come out and help with the bike path. We unloaded mulch, removed weeds, chop and dropped pigeon pea and vetiver grass. Everyone took home some seeds and picked from our harvest of lemon grass, moringa, basil, and lilikoi. The bananas are on their way.

Drew Wilkinson led the charge in creating a fruit tree guild. Fast growing & nitrogen fixing nurse crops (pigeon pea) protect & feed young fruit trees. Pollinator attractors (sweet basil) and a dynamic accumulator (comfrey) where planted to support the fruit trees’ growth & health.
