The Island Grown Initiative, through its Island Grown Food Rescue program, has placed receptacles at various locations around the island, including Chappaquiddick Point. You may have noticed the medium sized black rubbish can next to the ferry shack and mail box. Save up your food scraps and dump them in the collection receptacle. Along with food waste, you are welcome to donate meat and fish scraps, tea bags, coffee and filters, flowers, paper towels and napkins, but no plastics, trash or cardboard. These otherwise discarded material resources will be composted and turned into nutrient rich topsoil. Google Island Grown Initiative to learn about their many goals and programs.

The monthly photos of Chappy by local photographers are exquisite. Order online from the CCC website for $25 plus shipping.
