First Community Compost Task Force Recap

The first meeting of the Community Compost Task Force was well attended with 15 people. Our next meeting is set for Monday, March 16th, 6-7:30 at Orcas Library.  We welcome additional “worm wranglers” and Compost Junkies interested in helping Orcas Recycling Services reduce food waste in our hauled garbage.

Featured this month is Rhoda Sherman – the A through Z source for vermicomposting! Check out Rhonda’s book, The Worm Farmer’s Handbook: Mid- to Large-Scale Vermicomposting for Farms, Businesses, Municipalities, Schools, and Institutions.

We also invite you to also listen to the Urban Farm blog interview with Rhonda and scan her website as well.
