Composting at Kramer

A local group, Defending Democracy is asking for volunteers from Miami and the community to come in for a one-hour time slot during lunch and help the kids learn which items can be composted and which items cannot.  The buckets of compost will be taken to Oxford's bin composting site during a trial period


If anyone wants to volunteer, even if it's just for one week, Please contact Marilyn Elzey (513-461-9053) or
