13,000m^3 ~= 5.2 ?? volume of an Olympic-sized swimming pool

That is the volume of old straw, rice hulls, grape musts, newspaper mulch, grass or leaf mould – in fact, almost anything organic in nature that I am looking for to create a 10cm (2 inch) mulch layer across 13 hectares of land as a form of organic matter weed suppressant.

Ideally, “free + cartage” would be the right price … but I don’t even know where to start looking. 

Open to suggestions and ridicule from the peanut gallery.
