compost http://wwno.org en Earth Day Composting http://wwno.org/post/earth-day-composting <p>Tomorrow is Earth Day. While I risk sounding cliché, every day should be Earth Day. Instead, we treat the planet like trash. So, what is to be done?</p><p>For those of you who are discovering the joys of growing and cooking with fresh ingredients, might composting serve as one small step towards ecological responsibility? I know that sticking out of my market bags are voluminous carrot tops and leek greens. And that&rsquo;s only that which I couldn&rsquo;t fit inside the bag. Sometimes, I make stock with this excess fiber. Other times, I cut and disregard.</p> Sat, 21 Apr 2012 18:30:00 +0000 Richard McCarthy 9696 at http://wwno.org
