Unexpectedly, the compost at the North Bin (the one by the shed) will be ready ahead of schedule. Everyone should feel free to take a pail full beginning August 12. After August 19 the remainder will be available on a first come, first served basis. You’ll find the finished material in the middle bin.
Feel free to continue to donate coffee grounds and kitchen scraps. Some people have started tidying their summer plots. That material is most welcome. All these green materials should go into the short bin on the left.
We will need some brown materials to build the next pile for September distribution. Bags of leaves from local trees are ideal. Please do not donate wood chips or sawdust unless you can absolutely verify that the source does not contain pressure treated wood. Cedar is best avoided as it slows bacterial growth and can stunt the growth of monocots (corn, wheat etc).
Please put donated brown materials BESIDE the bin. We want to be able to see and control what goes into the piles we build so that the end product is safe and of the highest quality. If you are unsure about what materials should NOT go into the system please refer to the list posted on the bin.
Thanks to Mark and Lily for the muscle power!
