We got this lovely email after our interview on B.C. Almanac, and we just want to share her story with everyone.
Hi [Food Scraps Drop Spot],
I just heard the interview on CBC BC Almanac about compost pick-up at the West End Farmers Market.
I cannot tell you how guilty we feel when once every week or two we lug our little compost bin down Robson Street, sneak our way toward the non-public compost bin intended for the Whole Food patrons enjoying their lovely lunches on the patio at the Whole Foods cafe, lift the lid off the bin (as everybody turns from their salads and lentils to see what we are up to), and we (eyes averted) shake, bang, and slop our stinky (but-oh-so-full of future soil nutrients) compost into said bin. As we sneak away, often without purchasing anything from the Whole Foods store, we think to ourselves, “composting should not make us feel so guilty!”
So thank you. We will be by this Saturday with a load of future soil gold for your pile.
All the best with this effort.

Thank you so much - that is a bit funny and very sweet! So glad we can offer you to compost without guilt. (And thank you for letting us re-post it on here!)
If you want to share your story about composting - you can write to daniel (at) eatlocal (dot) ca (Just replace the words in parentheses with appropriate punctuations when sending the email.)
