Compost

Compost is nature’s ultimate way of recycling nutrients back into the soil.
Composting diverts wastes that are currently going to the landfill. Composting also improves the fertility and health of gardens and gives an opportunity to learn about the process of decomposition. It is easy, inexpensive and fun.

The compost Garden is now accepting your compost!
This is perfect for those who live in an apartment, and the offices on campus who want to compost.

We will take:

  • Coffee and tea bags
  • Fruits and Veggies
  • Grains/Cereal

We will not take:

  • Dairy
  • Meat
  • Paper Products
  • Cardboard
  • BioPlastics
