Composting: supporting tomorrow’s growth
Composting: supporting tomorrow’s growth

Sometimes we struggle to explain what we do.

Do we talk about how food scraps in trash are not only a lost resource, but also create a cascade of ecological and social impacts?

Do we talk about the substantial task of creating restorative food systems no longer dependent on chemical fertilizers and toxins?

Do we talk of participatory ecology and engaging children as agents of change?

Yes. We do all these things.

And perhaps we humbly note that composting is nothing more than respecting the rules of our ecosystem, where everything returns to the soil, supporting tomorrow’s growth.

Supporting us.
