Happy Earth Day from the Goose

To celebrate Earth Day, the Goose has another introduction to make. Our re-purposed, recycled but still new to us composters have made a happy home near the Goose Garden.
Designed and built by Tom Battista and Tyler Henderson, our composters are made of discarded but reclaimed food-grade barrels and slices from an old tree that had to be cut down in the Meridian Kessler neighborhood. Organic waste from the shop goes in and luscious, rich compost comes out. The barrels are filling up and peculating, preparing this year's waste for next year's garden, while last year's compost already sits on the Goose Garden just steps away.

It's all part of a delicious cycle that makes sense for Mother Earth and Mother Goose: eat, compost, grow, eat, repeat.
