Composting

The Institute for Food Farm is now accepting compost!

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to pickup food scraps at this time do to fears of contaminating our truck with potentially spoiled food. However, members are welcome to bring their own food scraps to the farm at any time!! For anyone who doesn’t know we are located on the corner of Morning Sun and Somerville Rd. The compost bins are just past the driveway.

Compostable items include conventional or organic raw fruit and veggie scraps, cooked food scraps, coffee grounds, and egg shells.

These items need to be “pre-digested” in our rotating compost bin before being added to our larger worm bin. Anyone who is interested can simply add their food scraps to the door labeled “feed me”. We will do the rest of the work to insure that this food waste makes it’s way back into the earth.
