Turning Thanksgiving food scraps into nutrient-rich fertilizer

Food Scraps

Thanksgiving is about great food and celebrating with family and friends. The time of year often anticipated, as it’s when family and friends get together and enjoy one another’s company.

Thanksgiving usually means one thing, an opportunity to totally indulge and feast on the delicious foods offered at the dining table. Making Thanksgiving a major operation … there’s the shopping, preparation and cooking, followed up with serving, eating and lastly, the cleanup!
