Celebrating Independent Gainesville
Awesome update from our friends at Gainesville Compost!EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS:
* Recently, we have become involved in a mentor group along with five other recycling small businesses in the Gainesville area. Together we are working on packages to offer sustainable waste stream solutions to large local institutions.
Associating with these folks (who have been in the recycling business for decades) has been immensely inspiring and educational for me and
I am grateful.
* In the process of developing our offerings with the Sustainable Waste Stream Solutions Team, we have become a more organized and capable company, more than doubling our past sales patterns.
* We have recruited a Chief Engineer & Inventor, Steven Kanner, a soon-to-be UF grad who is helping us to develop amazing high-capacity bicycle trailers made from reclaimed materials, and other impressive composting technologies.
* In spring 2013, we plan to launch a Community Compost Database with more transparent data on the food waste we are diverting, the soil we
are creating, and the partners that are making it all possible.
We have a Giftable Pint offering of Local Worm Castings in recycled containers which we purchased from Gainesville’s The Repurpose Project.
We sold some at the Winter Gift Fair this past weekend and they were a buzz.
Worm castings are a super rich, clean, urban soil amendment derived from earthworm waste. These Giftable Pints make a great unique and
locally-sourced holiday gift for your gardener friends & family.

The pints are only $8 and available TOMORROW (Wednesday) at the Union Street Farmers Market from 4 to 7 p.m. Our table will be located near the pathway on the southeast end, just a few booths north of La La Land Farms.
We’ve also got some nicely-packaged Soil Food offerings in burlap bags (small and large), adorned with ribbons and a color-printed label and
