Scavenging compostable materials - Friday, September 3, 2004

Starbucks gives away their coffee grounds.

People cut their grass and put in bags in the back lanes.

Smaller grocery stores will give you their produce that
they throw out. Some of it does go back into a compost
pile to nourish more plants.

In the fall people have to many apples and pears than
they can eat. They bag them and leave them to rot.
That is sad waste.

An alternative is the Fruit Tree Project: "The Fruit Tree Project connects people who have fruit trees, people who can help harvest fruit, and community groups that use fruit in their programs."
