Maynard Girl Scout Troop Composting

posted Sep 21, 2011, 7:13 PM by Maynard CAN

"As part of earning the Girl Scout Silver Award, members of Maynard Girl Scout Troop 72622 have created a display of simple and inexpensive do-it-yourself compost bins. The display, which is located at the Maynard Department of Public Works Drop-off Center at the end of Winter Street, shows four types of bins: cement block, barrel, pallet, and mesh wire. These easy-to-make bins are the first step in starting your own compost area, and will save you money in the long run as you turn much of your household waste into free, nutrient-rich soil. Stop by, check it out, and get inspired to bring composting to your home!"
