TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The City of Tucson Environmental Services is holding a photo contest for local gardeners to win a compost bin. 

Schools with gardens and other community gardens have a chance to win one of four compost bins via the Do More Blue Tucson Facebook page.   Participants must submit a photo that best represents its garden in either the best school garden or best community garden.  Voting will take place until February 14, when the winners will be announced.

Any entries left will be entered into a random drawing for the remaining compost bins. 

To enter a representative of the garden must go to www.Facebook.com/DoMoreBlueTucson and ‘like' the page; after doing this they can click on the contest link to enter.

"Composting is a great way to preserve our resources while reducing greenhouse gas emissions," said Francis LaSala, waste diversion manager, in a recent release on the contest. "Composting is relatively simple, and reduces a garden's need for soil amendments. This contest is a great opportunity for students and the community to practice the three R's of waste diversion: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle."
