Coupons for Compost: Help beautify traffic circles

April 22nd, 2010 by Athima Chansanchai

Don’t recycle your next mailing from Seattle Public Utilities – it might contain coupons good for 2 free bags of Cedar Grove Compost. If you’re not going to use the coupons, consider gathering them for those who want to improve some common areas in the neighborhoods: traffic circles.

Cedar Grove CompostIt’s another helpful tip from the folks at FAWN (who, yes, are being very good initial sources for this fledgling Fremont Universe blogger, but I am accepting tips! Send them to tips@fremontuniverse.com!)

From faithful FAWN member Sally Deneen, regarding those coupons:

“Please don’t toss them, if you don’t need them. We’d be grateful if we could use the coupons to add as much compost as possible to the traffic circle. Among other things, it’d encourage our strawberries — yes, there have been strawberry plants there since the beginning, but they’ve never born fruit due to poor conditions. Thanks for your consideration and for helping our traffic circle!”

Email fawn.seattle@gmail.com and they’ll forward your message to Sally.

Are your neighbors taking similar initiative with the traffic circles in your neighborhood?

Where to go to redeem those aromatic bags of future promise: Monday – Friday, at the north end of Seattle Conservation Corps at Magnuson Park, 7400 Sandpoint Way, and follow the signs. Or the smell.
