Greening the Labor Day Festival

While we can’t quite recycle in person this year, we are still being green!

Join us at 2:00 PM on Saturday for a Compost Tour at Roosevelt Center

Join master composter Danny Lewis to tour composting operations in the center of Greenbelt. Meet Danny at the Green Team Information Table.

Danny will lead a short walk to the 3-bin hot composting station near the Aquatic Center, where food waste from the Co-op Supermarket is transformed into compost wormfood, followed by a visit to the worm condos behind the New Deal Cafe, where worms supercharge that compost. You will learn about hot composting, worm composting, and how volunteers are recycling organic waste from the food co-op and, coming very soon, food scraps from the New Deal Café as well.

(Past Info: The Greenbelt Labor Day Festival needs volunteers to help fairgoers separate recyclables from trash. Volunteers will wear a Greenbelt Public Works sticker, a little green turtle or frog pendant, and maybe other green attire. We also plan to have some Circus Kids doing skits and some people making announcements—we can use help in all these areas.)
