Donna Suffridge is October's honorable composter of the month, which comes with an exciting $100 prize! Check out her compost testimony below:
"I am actually a brand new gardener and composter! I ran across your website in May when I started thinking about putting a garden out. I wanted to grow as organically and responsibly as possible , so that included composting. I was excited to find the website, and promptly tried building my compost bin. Needless to say, it was an epic fail! I looked into buying a bin, but was pretty disappointed with what I found in the stores. As I looked at the different styles , I came to the conclusion that I could repurpose my dogs kennel, and that would get me by for a while. I kind of laughed at myself about it, but I think it worked pretty well as you can see in the pics! My first season wasn’t flawless by any stretch, but not a complete disaster for a newbie like me! I hope you enjoy my video about my first experience with gardening and composting! I’m so excited about winning this month’s drawing!!!"
