Great Day of Planting – May 21 10am-12pm
Join us at the MUD Tool Library as we celebrate Missoula’s Great Day of Planting! We’ll be prepping and planting our vegetable garden as well as working on our other gardens around the site. Bring work gloves if you have them and dress to get MUDdy.
Annual Llama Poo Sale
Each year around Mother’s Day, we host our annual llama poo sale. Stop by during tool library open hours to pick up some of your own magical garden fertilizer.
Llamas and alpacas have a special digestive system that causes their manure to be high in nitrogen, which is excellent for plants. Furthermore, unlike the manure of cows, horses, and sheep, llama poo does not have to be aged before it can be applied to plant roots. Most other types of livestock manure must be aged prior to applying or it will burn the roots of plants. Llama manure, however, can be applied to your plants fresh, dry, or as a tea that nourishes your potted plants without any odor issues. Check out these 5 ways to use llama manure in your garden!
