Rice Straw for the Garden

Today we received several truck loads of rice straw and you can see our Balinese Team along with our volunteers working closely together and transporting the loads into the organic gardens to be used as mulch. When broken down in the rains, the straw offers a nutritious layer of top soil. Another very important function of the straw is to prevent the grass and weeds from growing in the garden beds. In our tropical climate this is a major challenge since the weeds grow throughout the whole year.
