Summertime is for Composting! Volunteers Needed!

Greetings Community,

I hope you are all keeping cool in this hot and humid weather. I wanted to reach out and thank all that have been dropping off their food scraps.  
It is so wonderful to know that people are diverting their food scraps from the land-fill and helping to create something nutrient rich for our earth. 
As many of you know this compost site is completely volunteer run.  The summer months become a bit of a challenge because many people go on vacation. I am reaching out to ask for your help. 
 We need more volunteers. If we don't get volunteers we can't continue to run the site. All we ask is for a bit of your time. The more hands we have the easier the load. So come on out. I will be there this Sunday, July 23rd at 2:00 if anyone would like me to show you how things get done.Hope to see you soon.All the bestMaddy
