Kathryn Dipietro & Dale Overturf from Roane County share what their experiences have been through Tennessee Environmental Council's #ComePostYourCompost program.
“We love composting and look at that shiny new compost pail. And we really love it when we grow things in our compost bin. Last week cantaloupe. This week sweet potatoes! Not only are we saving things from going to the landfill, we are also growing food from our scraps and using earthworms and compostables to enrich our garden. Anyway you look at it, it is a winning choice.”
“One of the things composting has made me very mindful of is wasted food. Since Dale and I have been composting, I'd think we have really redused our wasted food. We shop less, use more, and make sure we use what we have before it goes bad. We also are using food scraps to grow food in our garden. We have red peppers, cantaloupe, broccoli, and celery growing from food scraps and flourishing in the garden. Thank you for bringing this to our attention through your composting initiative!”
