While we wish to use all the produce from our weekly shares, it is not always possible to do so. The question then arises of the best way to dispose of the food scraps. You may wish to consider composting if you have a garden. There are several local resources to help you get started. There are composting solutions for apartment dwellers.
There are many drop off sites for food scraps for those who do not want to do their own composting.
Milk Not Jails is offering a special order if you are interested in trying any of their products. This may be in addition to your regular order. The order form must be completed by June 10 for June 19 delivery.
