With every compost purchase made during Compost Days™, we will donate the same amount of compost to local gardens growing fruits and vegetables for those in need in our community.
Last year, through the Big Garden Give, we donated 1,119 yards of compost to community gardens - over half a mile of compost!
And that’s just for starters.
Together with our garden partners, Seattle Tilth and the WSU Snohomish County Extension Office, the Compost Days™ Big Garden Give installed two new gardens - a community garden at the Reunion House, senior housing facility, and a school garden at Marysville Arts & Technology High School.
Both gardens are feeding their communities, saving the average family they serve $650 a year in fresh produce.
Putting your food scraps in your curbside yard waste cart makes a big difference! Nearly 30% of what we throw away in our garbage is food scraps and food soiled paper, and that’s stuff that shouldn’t go to waste.
Vegetable and fruit trimmings, meats, fish and poultry scraps and bones, plate scrapings, egg shells, coffee grounds, paper towels and napkins–even greasy pizza delivery boxes–it can all be composted. Just toss into your curbside yard waste cart.
