Tuesday, April 6
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tuesday, April 6th at 7:00 pm. Two local residents who love to compost are here to tell you everything you need to know about backyard composting and the local Food Scrap Recycling (FSR) program. What is composting and why do it? We will explain how to set up a simple compost bin in your yard to produce rich, brown compost to nourish and enrich your soil. For food items not suitable for backyards (fish bones, meat and plate scraps, spoiled food, etc.), or for those who prefer to participate only in the municipal Food Scrap program, we will explain how easy and meaningful FSR is.
“Never has so little effort produced so good an outcome!” Elizabeth Poyet has been backyard composting since she was 10; she volunteers in the FSR program and heads the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Pollinator Pathways initiative. Judy Caputo volunteers with FSR and the Love Your Food community program, including working with students at Hommocks and with the Mamaroneck School District’s food rescue donations to HOPE in New Rochelle and Don Bosco in Port Chester.
Sponsored by the Larchmont Environmental Committee and Town of Mamaroneck Sustainability Collaborative.
