We Heart the Compost Club

We heart The Compost Club!

This Sonoma County nonprofit was founded by Peace Corps volunteer Rick Kaye, and implements educational composting programs at local schools. The schools then sell their compost as a fundraiser.

Oh, Peace Corps. Encouraging sustainable programs since 1961.


Anyway, this program is super cool and is gaining momentum. If you are a Sonoma County resident, consider purchasing a $75 Smith and Hawken compost bin from the Compost Club – they’ll deliver it! If you live outside Sonoma County, take this program as a model. It’s good for the kids, good for the schools, and good for the environment.

In other news, my roommate threw an avocado skin in our mini undersink compost bin. 24 hours later, the thing’s covered in spidery white mold.

Neat-o! It doesn’t even smell!
