Can I use newspaper in my community garden plot?
Newspaper is not allowed as a mulching agent or weed barrier. Although this may be an acceptable practice in home-gardens, the city has received many complaints from other gardeners, and from area residents, about newspapers blowing around the area because they were not adequately covered up and maintained.
