From Plate to Garden

Waconia School District sells cafeteria compost at annual fundraiser.

Feed your garden at the second annual Plate to Garden fundraiser for Waconia Schools. In association with Carver County Environmental Services, the Waconia School District is selling 25-pound bags of compost for $5 each. The compost comes from food waste collected from the lunchrooms and kitchens of select Waconia schools and other Minnesota school districts, which is all composted at a local landfill. Bags of compost will be sold on April 22 (Earth Day) at Clearwater Middle School; the pick-up site will be at Mackenthun’s Market. Visit the website here for details.
