Sandye is the Education Coordinator at Moscow Recycling. She enjoys everything outdoors and especially storytelling. One of the best parts of her job is educating kids about recycling and composting. She is thrilled to be able to tell worm stories and have a fun activity for the kids at PCEI’s Summer Storytime event.



CompostStewFeatured Book: Compost Stew by Mary McKenna Siddals

From eggshells to wiggly worms, this delightful recipe in bouncy verse features items—some familiar and some not so—that are fit for the home compost bin and will nourish Mother Earth. Vibrant collage illustrations use recycled and found materials to further a timely message. And to keep young environmental chefs fully informed about composting do’s and don’ts, there’s a note in the back about what’s not fit for the bin.
