Volunteering Helps Land a Job
"My time spent volunteering for SCARCE helped me get my first job, inspired me to build my own compost bin at home to help my parents save money on garbage stickers, and also inspired me to promote recycling when I went away to college. Many of my friends also got thier first start and some real job experience
helping out Kay and her team as they taught classes on watershed management, made paper, and explained just exactly how worms make our food scraps into the best dirt imaginable."
