Community Composting Project
The community composting project has begun. With the purchase of a huge 100-gallon dual chamber composter, we will be making nutrient rich soil and keeping compostable waste out of the landfills. This soil will give the communities compostable goods a second chance at life and may one day fuel the plants within our community garden! Stop by today to learn about the composting process or to bring in some of your compostable goods that you would like to add to the mixture. Below is a list of things that are compostable and things that are not.
