What To Do With Leaves and Yard Waste.
Posted on Jun 15th, 2018 Comments (0)

Backyard Composting

What to do with leaves and yard waste. Have you considered backyard composting?

Information can be found through the Berkeley County Extension Agency,  https://extension.wvu.edu/berkeley/ag-natural-resources, they sell a compost barrel kit.

An excellent book on composting is

The Rodale Book of Composting, https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=the+rodale+book+of+composting&tag=mh0b-20&index=aps&hvadid=77721781480042&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_2aa1qa5yau_e, which would be very helpful for setting up backyard composting. Ideally, this is the preferable way to dispose of leaves and grass without involving fossil fuels and extra labor.

 

You may want to consult the Master Gardner program through the extension agency for additional help.

Deer Feeding Regulation
Posted on Aug 25th, 2015 Comments (0)
DO NOT FEED THE DEER
A number of homeowners are concerned about the overpopulation of deer within The Woods. One of the concerns was that some homeowners are feeding the deer and did not know that it is illegal to bait or feed deer in Berkeley County. This law is in place in an attempt to control  Chronic Wasting Disease within the West Virginia deer populations.
 
To read the complete Regulation Summary click here: Chronic Wasting Disease 
 
Several homeowners at the meeting were very concerned because they or their neighbors are suffering with Lyme disease.  Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks (deer ticks). This link provides information about Lyme Disease http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/

Do not feed the deer on your property within The Woods. Not only is it illegal but it is also a health issue.
