Pictou River, The Garden

by Alaine

1.  About

The garden is located in lush territory, butting up against the Pictou River. 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 serves as a boundary marker.

A number of different plants are cultivated 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 and transported to the Storage shed for safe-keeping. Prior to the 2011 winter, the garden is not winterized.

3.  Items and Use

  • All members are encouraged to give items over to Salsola as a whole; placing things of practical 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.

3.1  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.

3.3  Scented

Lavender (Med. Supply)

[image here]

Salsola has a large supply of Bayberry, originally traded from Cercatori d'Arte. Citlali planted these in the start of the gardening project. These are frequently used to scent one's fur prior to leaving Salsola.

Originally harvested from the wild by Ankh D'Aabt, the aromatic herb was then replanted near Ankh's home and later moved to the SL garden for communal use. It can be best utilized in incense making, herbal medicine, for basket weaving and also to flavor food and drink. Its strong, pleasant scent can be used to disguise one's origins.

A heavily scented plant with multiple properties, lavender is an extremely useful herb. In addition to it's primary use of perfume, lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites. Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness. This lavender strain was originally grown by Calla Valentine around her home.

3.4  Medicinal

Meadowsweet (Lg. Supply)
Lemon Balm (Med. Supply)
Catnip (Sm. Supply)

This extremely useful medicinal plant also functions as another scent-mask for the Salsola canines, as it possesses a strong smell.

Clover grew the supply from stem cuttings rooted in water. Clover has planted it a small walk from the defined area of the garden due to its virulent seeding ability.
