The On-Farm Composting Task Force of the F2P Food Cycle Coalition was created at the beginning of 2019 to support farmers in accepting food scraps from their communities to compost on-farm to build soil health. One of the exciting projects that the Task Force has undertaken is supporting the crowdfunding campaigns of two Hartford businesses: Sunrise Farm, which hopes to build the necessary infrastructure to handle a larger volume of compost, and Willow Tree Community Compost, which is a new and growing door-to-door collection service.
The two local entrepreneurs are working together to develop a resilient close-the-loop system for the Hartford community that recycles locally generated food scraps to build soil to grow more food. The On-Farm Composting Task Force will also use this partnership as a case study in educational materials for those who want to replicate the model in other parts of the state. If you know anyone who could donate, as an individual or as a business, please share these campaigns to help make this partnership possible!
