We’ve had a lot of inquiries in past seasons about the possibility of starting a compost program within the garden, and we’re now ready to move ahead with the venture. Question is, if we purchase a pair of “Urban Compost Tumblers” (like what Granny is using below) would they be put to good use by you, our members? Please leave us a comment on this post letting us know if you would be interested in bringing in your vegetable scraps on Thursdays for composting. It would mean a great deal less waste going to the landfill from your household, and it would be a real benefit to the garden in the form of all that nitrogen-rich material eventually being added to the soil.
A hassle-free way of storing organic scraps is to collect them in a bag or plastic container in your freezer throughout the week—no smell, no mess. If we can get more than a dozen shareholders to express interest in participating in a compost program, then we will go ahead with this. So please leave comments, or drop us an email!
