Duggan Community Garden – compost needed

The Duggan Community Garden is in desperate need of kitchen scraps for their compost bin. I’m asking that you consider taking a bucket of kitchen scraps (no meat or dairy please) once a week to the garden compost-even once every two weeks would be great as every little bit helps.
The Duggan Community Garden is located directly south of the Duggan Community League parking lot. You can’t miss the compost bins. We have a lovely green park bench overlooking the garden which you might want to avail yourselves of as well. It’s a lovely environment to just sit and soak in.
Thanks for your consideration in offering your assistance.
Cheers.
