Two of the few urban sources that come to mind are shredded leaves and coffee grounds. I have no experience with either but I am going to try leaves in the fall. Sawdust is almost always considered a waste product by anyone but a large producer so try any firewood processor locations or even yards that process firewood by hand. Also check for advertisements for mobile custom bandsawing companies as a potential source. If you have any farmer/chicken owner friends try to get used feed bags to give to potential donors for smaller amounts. It is a very handy way to get, store and move cover material.

The local lumber mill started burning all their sawdust for electricity generation :-( and no longer sells it. The moulding shop also stopped giving me sawdust (maybe they got wise to what I was doing with it). Does anyone have any ideas for getting carbon medium in the Halifax area? The cheaper the better.
