With almost a month of fall in the books, it’s not too early to start making preparations for the winter season, because yes, it is coming. 

That’s exactly what the folks at the Glencoe Community Garden are doing these days: making preparations for the winter chill. While everything might be covered in snow for months on end, that doesn’t mean the gardeners there can rest on their laurels (pardon the pun). 

With winter on the horizon, one thing dominates the attention of the garden: composting.
