4th Annual Backyard Compost Challenge

This story first appeared in The News-Gazette on February 14, 2024.

The project runs March 9 to May 20, 2024. Participation in the study is open to all residents of Buena Vista, Lexington, and Rockbridge County, but only households not currently composting will be eligible for the free compost kits. According to organizers, priority goes to households with children with others selected by lottery. There is no cost to participate and indeed at the end of the study, households who wish to continue to divert their food waste may keep their composting kits, a $150 retail value. Interested households must register online, and the deadline to sign up is March 1, 2024.
