If this is your birthday or perhaps your wedding anniversary, congratulations! 

This Is Learn About Composting Day! 

Marc Doyle

Today is a great opportunity to "Go Green" and help the environment. Composting is easy. It makes you feel good, knowing you are doing your part to keep our environment a little bit cleaner. You may be surprised at how easy it is to compost. And, everyone can compost.

As you learn about composting, you will be surprised at all the things you can compost. It is common knowledge, that you can compost garden and yard vegetation, as well as kitchen (vegetable) scraps. But, you can also recycle many other things, including papers, untreated wood, and cardboard. Cardboard paper towel and toilet paper holders are great items to compost.

You can use  compost around your plants, to feed them, keep the weeds down, and to help retain soil moisture. If you don't have a yard, you can give it away to family and friends that do. Your reward will be flowers, vegetables or herbs from thankful gardeners.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
