A push for more composting

It was great to see that Hennepin County is pushing the city of Minneapolis to compost more of its waste, rather than burning it (Hennepin County drops trash-burning request, pushes Minneapolis on composting).  With an estimated 30 percent of trash being organic material, there is a lot more that can be done in the area of composting.  At our home we've long practiced composting and enjoyed the benefits to our garden along with the reduced amount of waste.

I will be continuing to encourage our lutheran church and children's learning center to be better at composting.  We certainly do generate a lot of coffee grounds, among other things.
