I am so glad that KALE is the first main event for 2015 SICSA. Kale or borecole is a vegetable with green and/or purple leaves. The leaves from the central base do not form a head. It is considered to be closer to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of vegetables.

The compost project is going to take off this year and we'll need more bins with which to distribute the finished compost. If you have spare buckets, plan to bring them to the first few distributions (and keep one for yourself). What works really well are big plastic kitty-litter buckets like the one pictured below.

New York’s food, farms, and agriculture are under threat from fracking, a dangerous gas-drilling method that threatens the purity of our water, air, and land.
We would not recommend planting in the soil that was flooded by Hurricane Sandy. Have your soil tested. Petroleum products would need some serious treatment or removal. Adding compost to the existing soil will help bind up any heavy metals which may also be of concern.
