We talked with gMum Miriam, who just started a compost pile with her husband Lee and their kids, four-year-old River and one-year-old Will, at their home in Washington.
“Growing up, my mom always had a compost pile for her garden, so I was curious about having one for my kids too. And we are planning four raised garden beds this summer, so compost will be a great kick-starter for the soil.” Continue reading Getting the dirt on compost: tips from one family’s story
