We received our first share of vegetables from Sauvie Island Organics this week and a compost bucket! We never thought we would be able to compost at our apartment since we don't have land or even a deck. What would we do with the slimy mess? The problem has been solved - every week when I go down to Friendly House (a local community center) to pick up our vegetables, I bring along our filled compost bucket and trade it in for a new one! The farm adds our compost to their collection and uses it in the fields. This cuts down on the amount of waste we send to the dump.
I see an avocado, coffee grounds, bok choy, egg shells and little bits of green
