What's a Garbage Garden?

It's not just a lot of SCRAP!

What's a Garbage Garden, You ask?
Don't toss it scrap it:

My friend Julie tosses many of her vegetable scraps and seeds into a garden and watches it grow! It not only makes great compost soil.  It makes great vegetables.  It's a simple idea and one that thrives every summer.  It's colorful and resourceful, and it's always a surprise to see what will grow.  She gets a variety of vegetables from tomatoes to peppers, all types, all sizes. So, think twice before you put everything in the garbage disposal.
