KAPS Receives Grant
Wednesday, December 10, 2008 • Posted December 9, 2008

KAPS Kompost! is a new sustainable system that will soon be functioning at the Katherine Anne Porter School with the help of generous grant of $1,900 from H-E-B and Keep Texas Beautiful.

The grant will purchase rolling compost bins, worm bins, 20 adult comfrey plants, soil amendments, wheelbarrows, sign boards showing the compost cycle, worms, and more.

20 KAPS kids will have the opportunity to take a watertight Tupperware container home with them to collect food scraps from their families’ kitchen.

The KAPS kitchen has been composting for quite some time, but with the help of Linda’s Fine Foods, Parkside Montessori School, and any local grocery that would like to donate damaged produce, KAPS will be able to take their composting initiative to a whole new level.

There will be a Plasticless Picnic Potluck to celebrate the awarding of the grant on the next full moon, Friday, December 12th at 4:00pm on the lawn behind the school. Please bring a bowl, spoon, cup, blanket, and your favorite dish.

Local Permaculturist Gary Freeborg will be giving a short talk on Soil Health so be prompt. KAPS will also be accepting donations for current and future Green Initiatives at this time, all are invited.

Come see what the school is all about and support the cause in any way you can.
