Seatuck is fortunate enough to have a board of directors and volunteers who are constantly striving to keep the grounds looking beautiful. Recently, they completed the four bin composting area so that we can start re-using our leaf litter and old food scraps in our native landscaping.
Board members Tom Moldovan, Peter DiMento, Sue Avery, and Ken Phalen, spent an entire Saturday clearing the space behind the green house and lifting heavy concrete blocks. The compost is meant to mimic the look and feel of the historic Scully estate by using the original concrete blocks to create the compost structure. It has four sorting compartments to allow for easy turning and mixing of the pile, at different composting stages, from one bin to the next.
While this endeavor required a lot of physical labor, our board members will always reiterate that this place is an escape for them. It is enjoyable work that allows them to spend time outside at one of the most peaceful locations on the South Shore. Their passion for Seatuck shines through in these projects and we are grateful to have them!
