I have been AWOL for the last little while -- an English exam and a Reiki practicum to finish up have been consuming me.
The main thing I am working on these days is trying to find a way to compost my organic matter.
It turns out that my condo is not going to have the Green Bin Program until 2010 -- my property manager says no condos in Toronto will have it until then.
I am going to look into it.
In the meantime, my plan Bs have included a short lived green bin piracy scandal and a pot in my freezer that I am hoping to collect vegetable trimmings in during the week out of which I will make a huge thing of soup stock each Sunday. There would still be waste from that, but I guess I am imagining that it would be smaller from having been reduced. Maybe I could something to do with that. Some kind of mushy boiled carrot top sculptures?
Another idea I had is that maybe one of the farmer's at the Trinity Bellwoods Park market, where I shop, would be interested in the compost for themselves. I guess then all my compost would perhaps have to be organic, though...hm.
Another smog day today.
I was planning on checking out the Dufferin Grove Park organic market for the first time, but I am not walking all the way up to Dufferin and Bloor in this junky air.
I will try to post here more often, for those of you who care to hear about my enviro-exploits -- coming soon...an article on the whole condo debate in Toronto in light of any environmental issues it might raise...
