On Wednesday, September 17th, a Compost Workshop was held at LaPerche Elementary School for those interested in recycling right in their own backyards by starting their own compost bins.
Residents had the opportunity to learn from the experts from RIRRC on how to save money and precious landfill space through food scrap conversion into nutrient rich soil amendments. The big draw of the evening wasn’t the pudding “dirt cups” with gummy worms as snacks, but the raffle of four Earth Machine Composters to four lucky town residents who brought home not only tons of knowledge, but a great tool to create “compost magic.”
Interested in starting your own compost bin? Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for “do it yourself” and low cost options or to place an order for an Earth Machine Compost Bin at the Town discounted rate.
