Community-Composting and Eco-Project

 

 

Any participant who brings at least ten 5-gallon buckets (50 gallons) full of acceptable food-scraps will receive (if you want it) a 5 gallon bucket of (TESTED) compost either in the fall or in the spring for your own garden.

 

All participants must deliver and dump their own compost.  We will monitor, water, manage, turn and test the compost – you dump it and we will have a rinse station set up for you to rinse out your bins.
