Mary Forbes and Oliver Berger manage the composting station at the Potato House this week, where residents and business owners are encouraged to drop off food and yard waste. Not only can the waste be turned into nutrient-rich soil, it also diverts it from the landfill, where as much as 60 per cent of the waste is compostable. Forbes said the Potato House is in need of watering cans and a wheelbarrow, and is also collecting any rustic wedding decorations anyone may be willing to donate. (Angie Mindus photo)
