Ciscoe Morris to headline community garden compost drive
On Saturday, March 15, Compost Days is kicking off the spring planting season with a Cedar Grove truckload sale, gardening expert Ciscoe Morris live broadcast and the Big Garden Give compost drive at the Lynnwood Fred Meyer.
The campaign from 10-4 is a partnership by Waste Management, Cedar Grove Seattle Public Utilities and King County with multiple goals: thank residents for diverting 350,000 tons of food and yard scraps from landfills by composting at curbside, donate free compost to more than 150 gardens that feed the hungry, and offer residents deep discounts on compost and kitchen containers.
Participating in the Compost Days Big Garden Give compost drive is easy: the public can go online to www.compostdays.com from March 15-April 15 and donate a bag or take a pledge to compost.
Cedar Grove will match each coupon used and each online bag donation with one bag of compost to a community garden benefiting low-income communities, ensuring that all 150 community gardens will be ready to grow this spring.
Gardening expert Ciscoe Morris will be broadcasting live on KIRO radio from 10 a.m. to noon at Lynnwood Fred Meyer, 4615 196th St. SW.
