Leaves are one of the magic ingredients for making "black gold", a.k.a. compost. A Howard County Master Gardener would be happy to pick up the leaves from your house as part of the "Rake and Take" program.

The program matches up "rakers" with "takers" to the benefit of both. Just send an e-mail to include your address and telephone number and let the Master Gardeners know you would like to participate in the program. A Master Gardener will then contact you to make arrangements for a leaf pickup.


In case you are wondering, compost is made of "greens", which is green vegetative material, and "browns", the leaves. Leaves are a wonderful source of minerals and other nutrients that give added value to the compost.

The Rake and Take Program is sponsored by the University of Maryland Extension Howard County Master Gardeners.

Due to the nature of the film, this event is for adults only. The cost of attendance is $4 per ticket prior to date of attendance and $5 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at
