Thank you, Master Composter Recycler volunteers!


On January 16 we hosted our annual volunteer recognition event where we thank Master Composter Recycler volunteers and celebrate the impact they made in our community in the previous year. This year the event had a theme: masquerade! We had a mask making station with reused materials from SCRAP PDX and a contest for best masks. Most impressive was a team from the 2019 training and compost-making competition, the Hot Pockets, who wore costumes festooned with the logo of the snack food of the same name.

Volunteers honored included (MCR training year noted after volunteer name): Emily Barajas '18 (over 100 volunteer hours), Jennifer Wyld '18 (over 175 hours), Jill Devine '13 (over 150 hours), Kem Scorvo '18 (over 175 hours) and Ron Ferguson '18 (over 200 hours). We also recognized the amazing volunteers who served as instructors at our community workshops: Jennifer Wyld '18, Kris Potter '02, Kristen Clark '15, Summer Bradley '19 and Tina Barrows '17.

MCR is more than just a volunteer program. It's a community of people who share care for the earth and the community.

We have 33 new volunteers taking the training course now through March. We can't wait to see what creative, amazing work they do in the community in 2020!
