DYI COMPOST BIN TIME!

Either in an effort to live a little “greener” or if you are like any gardener, ready for Spring but your hardness zone isn't quite there yet... Compost seems a step forward to a great season ahead: make your own compost bin by Spring and have a great gardening season!

I searched the internet to find the easiest and cheapest way to make a compost bin, and came across these ideas:

 

1- 55 gallon drum that once held soy sauce (or any feed source):

2- Reclaimed wood or wood pallets:

Environmental Odyssey SPONSORS NEEDED!!!

Dear Friends and Members,

 

Environmental Co-op is organizing its Annual Environmental Odyssey - an educational program for more than 750 Terrell, Kaufman and Scurry 2nd grade students that will be held on March 4th and 5th, 2014. 

 

The event is geared to promoting environmental awareness to Kaufman County’s students through fun-filled education about Illegal Dumping, recycling crafts, water conservation, how worms help the soil, wildlife, and many more.  Most importantly, an anti-littering campaign bestows general awareness of the responsibility each one of us has regarding littering –education that helps to influence habits in our young people in order that they might make conscious decisions as adults.

 

Environmental Co-op, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, relies on the support of  funds and community involvement from you and businesses like yours in order to provide events of this type to Kaufman County. Any support from your company will help enhance the education we are able to provide for tomorrows’ adults. Will you consider a donation for this educational event?

We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to call us at any time.  Thanking you in advance.

 

Sincerely,

 

Marilyn May

Executive Director
