EARTH MACHINES AND RAIN BARRELS ON EARTH DAY

How do you prevent over 600,000 of organic waste from going into the landfill each year? Composting!  If 1,000 residents started actively composting, we'd save at least that and would realize a great nutritional resource for our gardens.  

On April 24th, Leon County is again sponsoring a sale on Earth MachinesTM  and this year is also offering rain barrels for sale. 

Details are on the Green Calendar 

Why compost?  In many local areas, our clay textured soil can be greatly enhanced by compost that reduces the soil's bulky density, increasing it porosity while reducing erosion. Compost keeps plants more moist and can improve the pH of the soil, while supplying a variety of nutrients including nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium.
