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!
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.
