The garden is located in lush terrain a short walk from the rich silt-infused and fertile banks of the Pictou delta. Various uncultivated plant cover disguises the garden from view, and a short fence surrounds it. The fence is useless for keeping vermin and such out of the garden, and merely serves as a boundary marker to separate the intentionally cultivated flora from the wild ones. A small cabin - little more than a shed - allows for the storage of crude gardening equipment and simple tools.

A number of different plants are cultivated here for Salsola's purposes; primarily, the pack is interested in healing items and items that can be used to conceal one's scent. However, any plants possessing useful properties may be added to the garden's stores.

The garden's proximity to the Pictou River allows for watering trenches to bring quenching liquid to the growing plants of the pack. Plants are frequently dried or preserved and later transported to the Storage shed for safe-keeping. Prior to the 2011 winter, the garden was not winterized. In more recent times, cold-hardy plants are covered in burlap sacks and lined with mulch and wood shavings to help keep the plants insulated from the wind and snow.

1.  Items and Use

1.1  Rules/Procedures

  • All members are encouraged to give items over to Salsola as a whole. Placing things of practical use within the storage shed is seen as a gain for Salsola, and can result in positive opportunities for your character.
  • Members are free to use these items however they see fit. Of course, excessive "take" without much "give" in return (i.e., if your character continually loots the storage shed, yet does not provide anything of value in return) may result in consequences if discovered by the leadership.
  • Salsola adheres to the Tagging System -- pay attention to the tags, as they designate what an item can be used for.
  • Please update the item quantity when you have made use of it. If you do not want to update the Wiki or cannot, please let us know to update it.

1.2  Help Out?

  • Bring flowers, plants, seeds, etc. to Salsola.
  • As winter is approaches, evergreen-type plants do best. Seeds for spring are also appreciated.
  • Winterize the garden.
  • Dry plants and store them.
  • Create useful items from garden-grown materials.
  • Learn useful planting or gardening techniques and share them with others.
