COMMUNITY COMPOST PROGRAM

Save your food scraps, bring them to the farm and we will turn it into nutritiously dense compost for our soil

 

Compost can be dropped off at anytime! Just add your material to the grey buckets next to our big hoop house (pictured below) 
Our composting process is done by our farmers and its hard work! Please make sure to read our tips below before contributing!

When growing vegetables and all plants it is important to be aware of your soil. This is where the plant gets all of its nutrients and power to grow! By bringing your compost to the farm you can be a part of our growing process!

We save all of our plant waste and compost-able products and build a compost pile.  This pile is turned and maintained regularly until the product has decomposed enough to be sifted and added back into our beds!
