Welcome to the first week of Restoring God’s Earth: A Year of Personal Action.
Our first month we will be focusing on Composting.
Decaying food (process minus oxygen) in landfills produces methane – a powerful greenhouse gas, 84 times more damaging than carbon dioxide. Solution? Compost that food! Composting ads in oxygen to the process and produces nutrient rich soil. Compost added to the gardens retain water, produces healthier plants and can even pull carbon dioxide out of the air (a process called carbon sequestration)! It’s Earth’s finest form of recycling.
Here are suggestions for ways to get started composting. Click the link for more information.
Freeze your food scraps for composting.
Find/rent a kitchen compost container.
The earth is the Lord’s, and all that is in it; the world and all who dwell therein. -Psalm 24:1
