Help Wanted: $20 an hour. Compost service demand is exceeding our ability!

We need help!  We have more demand for composting services than we can handle.  We are looking for someone to help us increase composting in the county.  We have about 6 - 8 hours of work a week, some flexible hours.  We can provide all the training.  If you are interested, please let us know.  We would love to help someone start their own company and help provide services we can't keep up with.  You can email us at jbwkjc@gmail.com or call at 304-482-3062.  Thanks! Kim & John

Our gathering with Mountaintrue at the Cedar Mountain Canteen was fabulous.

We had our first gathering of 2021 June 3rd at the Cedar Mountain Canteen with a presentation from Anna of Mountaintrue and learned how to be good neighbors to the Little River, which is beside our beer garden.  It was magical seeing everyone together for the first time in over a year.  The food was fantastic and it was a joyous occasion. We learned the results of our first water test in the Little River and it was excellent!  Thanks to everyone who joined us.  It was wonderful to be together again. [...]

SEED libraries (especially Natives), another great way to share, to support our ecology

Seed Library - another great way of sharing and saving our environment What is this? You may have seen some of these little free library boxes around that people use to share books. The idea behind these seed libraries is similar in that people can share seeds. We hope this works well so we share seed, ESPECIALLY NATIVES! Have you spotted one in T Cty yet? Who wants to build one for your neighborhood? Expect to see them soon, at the Canteen, St. Paul's Episcopal, at the RR Native Plant Garden in Brevard ... and/or .....? How do I use [...]

How do you feel about starting potlucks again?

Picture above:  A Moving to Conservers gathtering at Rooster Head Farm It has been over a year since we have gathered as Moving to Conservers.  Now that John and I are part owners of the Cedar Mountain Canteen, we feel we have a home for Conservers to enjoy and use as a demonstration site to show how to move to zero-waste, compost, plant food and love each other. The Canteen has a wonderful outdoor garden on the Little River and we are ready to host Moving to Conservers' gatherings if you feel it is time to do that again.  All [...]
