Why Community Composting?

By keeping our food scraps local, we are:

-reducing the energy that would be used to transport organics to larger processing facilities

-creating rich, fertile soil that can be redistributed to our neighbors & used to grow food for our immediate community

-opening an opportunity to learn about and reconnect with the cycles of our organic material

Community Roots Farm is a member of the California Alliance for Community Composting
