Starting this Saturday, June 7th, we’ll be offering kitchen scrap drop-off for the Sara Hardy Farmer’s Market goers. We’ll be bringing our bike-powered Mobile Compost Pile to transport your scraps from the market to C’sC World HQ or one of our Neighborhood Sharing Stations. This is a pilot project for the month of June to test it out.
Here’s How It Works:
1. Come to the market. Shop local. Buy local. Eat local. We’ll by near Norte! TC’s Bike Valet on the west side of the market by the SEEDS Office (aka “The Birdhouse”). Maybe you can even come by bike? That’d be awesome.
2. Bring your bucket full of kitchen scraps to the market.
What can go into the bucket? Well, most everything that grows is OK.
“If is grows, it goes!”
Fruit and vegetable scraps, non-greasy food scraps like rice, pasta, bread,
cereal etc., coffee grounds & filters, tea bags (staples OK), egg and nut shells, pits.
Please NO meat, dairy, bones, chicken, fish, greasy food scraps, fat, oil, dairy, animal waste, litter or bedding, coal or charcoal, coconuts, yard waste.
3. Grab a clean bucket and lid off the bike trailer.
4. Buy lots of yummy/healthy/local veggies and fruits from the market and start filling up your bucket again with scraps. Come back the following Saturday to drop-off and grab a clean bucket. If you can line the bucket with a regular grocery store paper bag (keeps the bucket scrubbing to a minimum) before adding to it, that’d be fantastic!
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with more questions.
Cost? Because we love our Downtown Farmer’s Market, drop-offs will be by donation only during this pilot period.
Compost On! and we’ll see you Saturday.
