  1. I would love to win the night in the Earthship but do not want to win a night in a special recycling bin…Glad that you are running the workshop series again. You are doing great work for the community!

    1. Haha, thanks Mary-Ann. I wouldn’t want to wind a night in a worm compost bin either. However… if you would like a chance to win a worm compost bin please register for our gardening workshop on July 24, 2021 – where Connie Kuramoto will be teach about Composting, and we’ll build a worm bin. One of our July workshop participants will win the compost bin!
