GreenerBins Program Turned Full-Circle Farming

What started as our food scrap pickup program has transformed into a full-circle farming operation, where we work to show that our food system isn't wasteful – it can be regenerative!

  • Cartoon pickup truck and two bins with a GF logo on them. Text says: We pick up your food waste.
  • Cartoon chicken, rooster, tractor, and worm. Text says: we break it down.
  • Cartoon compost pile. Text says: and turn it into compost!
  • Cartoon farm layout logo. Text says: that compost grows new food at our farm & in your garden!

What Is Full-Circle Farming?

Full-circle farming works as a big loop. We start by picking up food scraps from homes, schools, and businesses, then we bring the scraps back to our farm to be composted, and finally we return the transformed nutrient-dense soil back to you each spring or fall! Any extra compost is donated to local community gardens and schools, and is also used to grow pesticide-free, organic produce on our farm! You can read more about each program under "Compost Program" and "Veggie Program". There may be a bug bite or two on some produce, but we're proud to grow food organically with soil health (and our health) in mind.
