Paint a Compost bin and
post a photo to be published on carryoncomposting.com
Celebrate Compost Awareness
Week by painting a compost bin. A painted bin can turn a garden necessity into a garden feature. Let the children use their imagination. The bin can be painted as a house, animal, decorated with flowers or general decorated with pictures of the
different items that can be put in the bin. Two children can share a single bin painting a side each. Water-based emulsion paint is recommended, as it's very easy to clear up, and it dries quickly.
Take a photo of the bin once painted
and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, post a copy on social media and send one to the local press.
