The 200 residents of 86-apartment Heather Place will receive a donated organic waste composter in their garden area and learn how to recycle their kitchen scraps into healthy and rich soil for indoor and outdoor plants, including a new edibles garden at the complex.
This new installation will help to reduce the carbon footprint of a large Metro Vancouver public housing facility and teach the several dozen children resident there--and their parents--how "good dirt" is made, and how much of a difference it makes in growing healthy plants and healthy food.
Come join us in selecting a prime location and inaugurating this new community facility. Please RSVP here to receive instructions the day before in case of a time change and to receive a rendezvous point.
