Calling All Wood Stove Owners
The superintendent in Terrace BC has been using wood ash and composted material as a disease suppressant for a couple years now. The wood ash has some sort of fungicidal properties in it that has been shown to suppress their michrodochium patch during the season.

You can contact me at the shop if you have some ash to donate.
