The new composting system

Sustainable Contra Costa

PHIG was nominated for Leadership in Sustainable Communities at Sustainable Contra Costa annual awards. As part of our educational outreach to the community, part of the school district's Green Team, which is part of the Pleasant Hill Environmental Initiative, last year's action was to build a 4-bin composting system to be used by the entire Pleasant Hill Education Center. This year an arbor will be added for additional educational and composting activities.

Previously PHIG's action as part of Sustainable Contra Costa's Community Resilience Challenge was to build native bee houses which are used at PHIG and in the neighborhood to increase nesting habitat for these small native bees. Keep us posted on what happens to your bee house! Print information and directions to build your own.
