Finally he agreed and we brought home Spot at the beginning of March 2017. This idea went over very well for our campers. They loved helping us feed Spot after meal clean up and even loved knowing what we used the food waste for.
It was an additional step in our compost process too. Spot would go through the food waste and eat what he wanted and mash up the stuff he didn’t want to consume. After, we would clean up his pin and add that mashed up food waste to our compost pile. Eventually that compost turned into soil and will be used around camp to plant trees, flowers, fruits, and vegetables!
Having him eat most of the waste really helped keep down the compost pile and helped us go through and make sure there wasn’t things in there that shouldn’t be.
Unfortunately, at the end of 2017 Spot got very sick and is no longer helping us maintain our food waste here at Camp Latgawa. Spot was well loved and definitely helped campers and guest see what happens with food waste and see the process we go through at camp to help minimize how much of our trash is taken to the dump.
