Varnum Memorial Library and the Lamoille Regional Solid Waste Management District have teamed up to offer a virtual program, “Cows Save the Planet,” with Vermont author Judith D. Schwartz to celebrate International Compost Awareness Week, Thursday, May 6, 6 p.m.

Schwartz “tells stories to explore and illuminate scientific concepts and cultural nuance. She takes a clear-eyed look at global environmental, economic and social challenges, and finds insights and solutions in natural systems,” according to one reviewer.

To request a copy of the book, email or call 644-2117. All attendees will have a chance to win a Soil Saver backyard compost bin, a food scrap collection bucket, or 5 gallons of compost.
