Updates: DPW has some exciting news. We will soon be rebuilding and adding to our worm bins both in People’s Park and in the Eucalyptus Grove!
Currently funding and bureaucracy are main issues with our ambitions of getting more efficient, larger, and longer-lasting worm bins. But never fear, we will make it happen! Keep an eye on People’s Park to see these changes, hopefully by this coming school year. In the meantime, if you have compost from home you would like to give to us, drop it in the compost bin in People’s Park (on the right side)!
