As we enter our final few weeks of the residential food scrap drop-off piloted we've co-hosted with the Mayor's Office of Food Initiatives, we thought we'd spice things up a bit, and close the loop!
Throughout the rest of October, for each drop-off we receive at the farmers' markets at Egleston Square (the last summer market is this Saturday), Bowdoin-Geneva and Harvard-Allston, we'll donate a cubic yard of compost to a community garden of your choice.
That's enough to grow an organic tomato plant!
The best part? We're pulling one more community partner into the equation, plus our hauler Renewable Waste Solutions will bring the compost right from Rocky Hill Farm, where our food scraps go! Thanks to Boston Natural Areas Network for their help with coordination!
