    Kauai Community College biology instructor Emily Brodrick and Rebekah Magers of the KCC Sustainability Club Ho‘ouluwehi discover some early deposits to the composting project that will officially launch on Monday.

Joanna Nishimura got the email and was anxious to get started with the composting project Friday at Kauai Community College.

Biology instructor Emily Brodrick and Rebekah Magers of the KCC Sustainability Club Ho‘ouluwehi were going through final details on how the food was going to be collected and transported to the big composting bin (you should see Rebekah spin that puppy like Vanna White) — no, this one spins sideways, not horizontally) that was provided through Zero Waste Kauai (no Cheeto’s bags, John Harder) and a county grant.

The project is part of the college’s Earth Month celebration, and Jimmy Trujillo of KKCR said the radio station will be broadcasting the month-long series of panel discussions that take place on Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. at the KCC One Stop Shop. The series starts Thursday with a “Why Wai?” discussion.

A full schedule of Earth Week activities is forthcoming (should be finalized by Monday, Rebekah said) with the big Earth Day celebration taking place on April 22.
