Our Food-Scraps-to-Compost program diverts food waste from the state landfill and uses that material to enrich the soil of community gardens.

How it Works

 

Our program offers farmers market customers at the Middletown and Newport Farmers Markets the ability to drop off food scraps for composting at Island Community Farm, where it will enrich the soil of all our community gardens.  

Compost buckets with tight-sealing lids can currently be rented from the market Welcome Stalls for $20 – but in order to sustain the program, this fee will increase soon.
