Backyard Compost Bin & Rain Barrel Sale

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the Town of Highlands Citizens Environmental Advisory Committee and the Community Garden at Holy Innocents are teaming up to offer local residents compost bins at discounted rates. Food waste contributes to the cost of trash removal and contamination of recycled materials. By composting we can reduce overall waste, and create wonderful amendments to our garden soil.

Why Compost?

We compost at the Community Garden and want all our neighbors to enjoy the benefits of compost, which include improving or maintaining high quality soil, growing healthy plants, reducing the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improving water quality and protecting the environment. By adding compost you can conserve water and help improve soil to help hold water in the root zone. Want to learn more? Check out this great video:
