Napkins! Napkins! Napkins!

Napkins? We know that composting is one of the fastest way to reduce the trash footprint of our community.  Rise and Shine has hired Hannah to help manage their food scraps and to help with their garden.  We are looking for individuals interested in doing a pick up service (we have paying customers waiting) and an individual to manage compost systems in people's yards (we have paying customers waiting). While we continue to search for those individuals, another campaign has come to our attention, a campaign to eliminate paper napkins from our community. How much fun is this!  We had a sewing bee at Cup and Saucer awhile ago and helped turn bins of fabric from Elisabeth's grandmother into napkins.  It was a lot of fun. Since buying the Canteen, John and I have been hosting food trucks and found all of them have been open to us supplying cloth napkins to their customers instead of using paper.  It has saved waste for us and saves money for [...]

Thanksgiving Day potluck

So many folks don’t have a place to share Thanksgiving dinner. Last year at the Canteen we had a private, small socially distanced potluck for a few of us and it was wonderful. This year we have decided to host a community potluck on Thanksgiving day. If you cannot bring a dish to share, we will feed you. Please join us. We ask that you bring your own non-disposable place setting, beverage glass and that you pack out anything you bring. We strive to be free of waste and appreciate help with that.   If you don’t have a place setting, we always have extras. We would love to share the holiday with you.

Have Pumpkins?  We want to compost them!

Rise and Shine is collecting pumpkins for their compost bins.  They would love to get as many as they can.  The scholars already have a few in the garden behind the church and they would love more!  Please drop your pumpkins off in the garden at Rise and Shine, located at Bethel A Baptist Church located at 290 Oakdale St, Brevard, NC 28712.  Have questions?  Please contact Hannah at hannahbowers0627@gmail.com.  Thank you!

Harvest Fest was wonderful. Thank you

Thank you to everyone who made Harvest Fest an heart warming community event. What a special evening. It was so wonderful to share a potluck dinner with everyone. Transylvania Shares was onsite and brought their grinding mill. I brought in corn I had grown and it was milled into grits and flour. We made cornbread on the spot and shared it. It was a wonderful experience. What a wonderful, loving community we live in. Thanks to all the Moving to Conservers members who attended. After a (public) house full of people we had almost no clean up. Zero waste is such a gift.
