06/22/12 This Saturday shoppers at the Market are being encouraged to bring their own baskets or reusable shopping bags to discourage the use of plastic. In keeping with the theme which will hopefully be an ongoing trend, Mike Good of the Recycle Depot (Marshall County Solid Waste District) will be on hand with information on what’s recyclable and debut the new compost twin for the Community Garden as well as demonstrate DIY compost tumblers and rain barrels. A limited number of drums will be for sale for $5. With dry weather, they are in even more demand. He will have a similar booth at the 4th Annual Briar Patch Folk Art Gathering near LaPaz on Saturday, June 30. For more recycling information, check out their website at www.recycleyourtrash.org.

The 4-H will demonstrate their recycling project.

Encore Performing Arts board members will be on hand with tickets for the first ‘Music in the Park’ concert-Parrots of the Caribbean. Information on upcoming events will also be distributed.
