LEAF IT! – The city is encouraging all of us to leave our leaves on the ground this year. They say, Rather than laboring away raking leaves, go over the leaves with a mower and mulch them. This returns nutrients to the ground and boosts next spring’s growth. In addition, the City will have smaller demand for leaf collection, which will further the efforts in cutting back on carbon emissions. We have developed a Sustainable Initiative to encourage the use of mulching and other sustainable practices. Thank you for participating in mulching this year and supporting the initiative through the survey and display of “Leaf it” yard signs this fall.” For more details and to register for a “LEAF IT” sign, visit https://www.cityoflacrosse.org/your-government/departments/parks-recreation-forestry/sustainability/fall

FRESH FOOD – The Aptiv Neighborhood Victory Garden is nearing the end of its season, but there are still beans, squash, kale, chard, tomatoes, peppers, and some other vegetables available. Get to the Apti parking lot at the temporary entrance just across from the A&W entrance, then go right. The gardens on on the right and just behind the main building. Group work takes place on Tuesday mornings from 8 to 9 a.m. weather permitting, but you may pick at any time.

HABITAT RECLAIM SERVICE – From Natalie Heneghan: “Habitat for Humanity’s new ReClaim service offers free salvage and material removal services for homeowners undergoing rehab and renovation projects. Our licensed staff and trained volunteers carefully remove usable materials that would otherwise be demolished and thrown away. We take cabinets, flooring, doors and windows, appliances, toilets and sinks, fixtures, and much more. We bring these items to our Habitat ReStore, where proceeds from the sales directly support Habitat’s work of building and rehabbing affordable homes.” For more information, please visit https://www.habitatlacrosse.org/reclaim.html OR call Natalie: (608) 785-2373 x113 or (608) 860-8725 (cell).
