Picking Up Compost!

One of our less glamorous but most consistent projects this summer is picking up food waste from Servo, the student’s pet name for Gettysburg College’s dining hall. We collect  bags of kitchen scraps about twice a week, hauling them back to the garden on a wagon we attach to my bike. It’s incredible how quickly our compost piles are filling up!

More to come about our connection with the dining hall!
