composting for carlton

We've just kicked off a new fundraiser! CGB is going to be raising money for the Carlton School (Salem's "green" school) by selling raffle tickets to win a compost bin!

Ok, Ok, we know what you're thinking. A compost bin, woohoo. But composting is a great green trick! You can create a natural fertilizer by "recycling" particular household waste. Not sure how to compost?

On Saturday, April 19, Andrea and Jacob Kasper, local composters, will be at CGB at 10:30 a.m. to show us just how easy and important it is to compost. Besides a demonstration, Andrea and Jacob will also discuss space options, winter composting, introducing worms and more. They'll be on hand to discuss any and all composting questions and concerns.

After the demonstration, we'll pull a raffle winner. The lucky guy or gal gets to go home with their very own compost bin! What a perfect way to welcome spring!

And if that itsn't enough to convince you, 100 % of the proceeds beneft Carlton's School PTO.

So pick up your raffle ticket (only $5 at CGB anytime after March 15) and mark your calendars for April 19.
