Grow Compost organizes a “soil abration” on Saturdays
Now under new Casella ownership, the Grow Compost facility on U.S. Route 2 in Moretown is open to the public for food scrap collection and compost sales.
This Saturday, June 4, Casella invites the public to a “Soil Abration” to drop off food scraps and tour the composting facility.
The 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. event will include a live stream on WDEV, ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s and food from KC’s Bagel Cafe. There will be face painting for kids, games and giveaways, including a design for a Yeti cooler.
Casella will donate $1,000 to the Waterbury Area Food Shelf and $500 to the Vermont Food Bank as part of the event.
Some useful details: the deposit of leftover food only concerns residential customers. All leftover food is accepted without packaging (including compostable packaging); no food stickers/labels or organic bags.
For purchases: Compost products are listed online and include mixes for seed starters and potting soil. Customers can pay in spades using their own containers. Bags are available for a small fee and staff can load large quantities of half a meter or more. Delivery is also available on weekdays.
