compost nourishes soil, rebuilds lives

Massachusetts is running out of landfills. Food scraps in landfills produce methane.
Diverting food scraps from the waste stream back into the soil in the form of compost is so simple
and so necessary. The Compost Co-operative turns waste into opportunity

one bucketful of food scraps at a time

by offering compost services to residents, businesses, and institutions in downtown Greenfield
and building co-operative business ownership among people who have been incarcerated.
