Quick Energy Tips from Your Green Library

Great ways to go green for little or no cost! New tip every Sunday.


Try a composting fence!

Get steel wire from any hardware store. Shape into a cylinder/tube. Make a row of these cylinders where you want a fence. Fill with your raked leaves! Over the next few months, the leaves will warm up & break down, making compost you can later use in your garden.

Don’t need a fence? Turn it into a play fort for the kids!
