• Organizational meeting for Sitka Health Summit community composting project is Monday

An organizational meeting for the Sitka Health Summit community composting and waste repurposing project takes place at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 10, at Harrigan Centennial Hall.

This was one of the three community health projects Sitka residents chose to work on this year when they met on Sept. 30 during the Sitka Health Summit planning day. The other two initiatives are to build a community playground and increase/expand access to physical activity in Sitka.

Monday’s meeting is free and open to the public. The goal for the meeting is to have a better understanding of what previously has been done with composting in Sitka, and to help identify composting and other waste projects to move forward over the next year.
