As we have already reported, Saturday, May 6th, is the opening day of the Ambler Farmers’ Market. Also on that day the Market, in partnership with Trax Restaurant and Cafe‘, is beginning a community composting program open to Ambler residents.
From the Ambler Farmers’ Market:
“Steve [Chef Steve Waxman of Trax]has a nice compost pile in the back of Trax which is well managed and has room to grow, so he decided to offer the pile to the community – specifically for those who want to compost but can’t do to whatever may be constraining them. You will be able to drop off your waste to the compost pile and come get compost from the pile when you need it. Conditions are that you must tend to the pile when dropping off and picking up.”
At 10 am, Penn State Extension Master Gardner Jane Irvin-Klotz will will go over the proper techniques of composting. If you want to participate in the program, you must attend the talk with Jane. For those interested, e-mail the market manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must RSVP to attend.
