Food chain

We often thing about our physcial waste and what goes into landfill however another really important aspect is the process our food goes through before it even reaches our plate.

We love this guide by @sunnythefarmer on shortening your food chain.

Hi there! I am moving to University Heights and while I am a little too far to request a garden plot here at this community garden, I am hoping you might be interested in me contributing to your compost! I'd be happy to drop it off when I fill up if this is something you all would be interested in :)
