Don't Trash the Scraps!

10/17/2019 | Bennett Spring State Park | Lebanon, MO

You are making a salad and have carrot tops remaining. Your potatoes are soft and sprouting eyes. The pineapple is sliced, but now you are left with the crown and skin. Don’t throw out your vegetable scraps! Many parts of the fruits and vegetables we eat can be utilized to grow new food, make living decorations or enrich soil by becoming compost. Meet at the park nature center to discover ways to divert vegetable food scraps from the trash.
