Green Team: Have you been considering composting to contribute to improving the environment? If you don’t have space in your yard or business site, you have another choice if you live or have a business in downtown Greenfield. The Compost Coop is a local business that will develop an individualized plan for you. They provide a collection container and pick-up it up weekly or biweekly. The Coop partners with Just Roots and Martin’s Farm to actually compost your compostables. Saints James and Andrew uses the Coop’s service.
The Coop was developed in the Think Tank at the Greenfield Jail to provide work experience, democratic control of their workplace and a living wage for people coming out of jail and prison. They have support from local foundations, businesses and consumers as they build their business. If you are interested in more information, their website is www.thecompostcooperative.com. What a useful service for the community and an exciting way to help people rebuilding their lives!
