The community organic gardeners are asked to take their garden scraps to this area to be composted. Several compost bins are available for the ingredients; leaves, grass, weeds, vegetable matter, and soil. Mixed together, temperatures can rise over 100 degrees, creating a rich fertilizer to be put back into the gardens. This is a good education for the public to learn the value of composting.
