Hello internet! Can you think of a better way to start the day than 7 AM compost collection? NOPE, US EITHER.
The summer compost program has been in full swing, with twice weekly food scrap pick ups from Bates and McAfee. We collect the buckets, wash them out, and return them. Here is an adorable photo of us washing out the buckets:
We’ve also started putting shredded paper in the buckets to reduce the smell between collections. Summer residents, let us know if you think this is actually working!
Then, we take the food scraps back to the Regeneration plot, to our 3-bin compost system. We dump the food scraps into the first bin, and then dump a whole bunch of brown matter on top. Today we used a combination of shredded paper and wood shavings from Wellesley’s animal labs. Here’s a satisfying picture of our compost bins:
See that middle bin? THAT IS ALL NEW COMPOST FROM SUMMER FOOD SCRAPS! Science!
Okay folks, here’s the ordering deal: every week, we’ll update the order form, which can be found below this hunk of text, to the right in our list of links, and at the URL www.tinyurl.com/regen-order. We’ll harvest TWICE, TWICE, TWICE weekly! Here’s what some of our customers this summer have said already about the online ordering system:
"The radishes and chives were delicious."
…and there you have it. Order today for Thursday delivery or pick up!
