'Weeders Meet Our Mulcher!

img_0651 2.jpg

  The SeaWeeders achieved a long-sought dream of visiting the EDCO Anaerobic Digester facility in Escondido on May 23! 

  Yes, we are mulch geeks. And that's what the Digester does: it turns our green and organic -- aka food -- waste into rich "digestate" that EDCO sells to area farms and makes available to Solana Beach each Fall on Bulky Waste Day as free mulch for home and public gardens.
   We got our hands dirty sampling, fresh-from-the-Digester, still-steamy mulch, which becomes a finer compost as it further breaks down due to --well -- digestion by millions of microorganisms that "eat" food waste, green waste, fats, oils and greases. When this happens in landfills the process releases methane gas, which contributes to atmospheric warming and climate change.

 Wreath Weaving

We may have created a new SeaWeeder holiday tradition!

It was such fun to make wreaths last fall with a dozen children from the Boys & Girls Club San Dieguito La Colonia branch. They helped us twist fresh-cut grape vines into circles for wreath forms and we helped one another turn our garden cuttings into holiday decor.  See more photos from this fun afternoon.
