Your kitchen scraps help us make dirt!

Curious about compost? Community members bring us kitchen scraps and deposit them in the white buckets just outside our fence.  We have a 4 bin compost system which we dig out at least once a week and then layer in the scraps & coffee grounds together with dry leaves. Do you want to help us compost? We always welcome more!

Yes:

  • veggie scraps, fruit peels, almost everything plant-based (see exceptions below)
  • coffee grounds & tea bags
  • egg shells

No:

  • meat or dairy
  • citrus
  • hard nut shells, avocado pits (these take too long to break down)

We use this dirt to plant everything in our garden which adds nutrients back in to the soil.

The compost pile is usually open early on Saturday mornings if you want to come by and see how it works, or we welcome scraps in the buckets at our front gate at your convenience.

Thank you for helping us grow!
