Foundation gives grant to Zajac Ranch

Money will go towards ranch's new composting system

A $600 grant from Mission Community Foundation will help Zajac Ranch for Children to fund its composting initiative.

A Japanese Bokashi composting system has been implemented at the ranch – located on the shores of Stave Lake in northern Mission – which are are compact, easy to implement and return all composted organic material to the ground, resulting in healthier more nutrient-rich soil, according to a press release.

With less organic material going into solid waste bins, fewer loads are taken to the landfill.

The Zajac Ranch allows children and young adults with chronic, life-threatening and debilitating conditions to have a summer camp experience.
