Making Compost: My way of Taking Care of Creation and Learning from the Earth

In community, we eat a lot of vegetables and fruit. So it feels natural to me to make our own compost.

I like to mix it, ensuring that there is enough moisture but not too much, and to see how it evolves.

At this time of the year, after several months without opening the compost box (thoroughly mixed before winter), the cycle is complete. It smells like the ground in a thick forest…

St. Gabriel’s Garden with some of our compost!

We donated two large pails of freshly ‘harvested’ compost to the Garden Ministry at St Gabriel’s parish, our parish.

Sr. Marie-Noelle and other volunteers spread it to the young fruit trees.

The cycle of life and simple joys!

Sr. Claire
