Compost bins for sale

For the past 4 years, Heather Henriksen has participated in an annual not-for-profit Earth Day event selling home compost bins. This year she has teamed up with Holly Grimes and White Pine Programs. White Pine Programs is a local nonprofit educational organization which provides children with nature-based programs designed to “renew connections to the earth and deepen awareness of place through nature- based learning.” $5.00 from every bin sold will go towards helping a child attend a program who otherwise may not be able.

Please download the order form (PDF), print out a copy, and return as soon as possible to the address listed on the form. The deeply discounted price is $43.50.

Orders will need to be received by April 30th. Don’t delay if you would like one!
Bin pickup date is on May 18 from 2-4:00 p.m. at The Marketplace in Cape Neddick on Route 1.

Join many of us who have learned home composting is easy, fun and rewarding!

    I’m 11 hours and five minutes late, but just found your offer. Can I still order I compost bin? I live in Cape Neddick and could drop the order form off today.

  • Greetings! Can I, take pics from your site for my school research work?

  • We don’t own the rights to all of the pictures, but use them under what’s called “fair use.” Any of the pictures that we took are free to be used under a Creative Commons license. I believe that a typical school project would encounter no problems with either arrangement. Thanks for asking.
