Sara Maximoff from Greene County shares what composting means to her:
"Compost appreciation! We compost because it aligns with our core values: We care about the food we eat, so we care about how it's grown. The food and flowers we grow deplete the soil, so we mimic nature to replenish it. Adding compost back into the soil improves the topsoil, which is the sustainable way to farm. If we do this right, seven generations down should still be able to farm this land too. ❤️
The payoff? We get delicious, heathy produce and flowers! We've started selling cut flowers at the market, connecting us to all kinds of farmers and producers who so willingly share their bounty and their wisdom. We're eating better than ever and living more beautifully AND sustainably. And we get to raise the next generation of farmers while we do it. #comepostyourcompost"
