Counting the Omer – Feeding the Land, not the Landfill
If you would like compost bins like this in your backyard, the Green Team would gladly assist. The project can be completed in a single afternoon. You can also find compost bins that you can purchase from local garden centers. Then your family can produce your own rich fertilizer from vegetable and fruit scraps that used to be considered garbage!
