Soil Cycle


Soil Cycle’s mission is to promote the natural food cycle by providing environmentally sustainable compost services and education.


Soil Cycle strives to simplify sustainable living and encourage citizens and businesses to reduce food waste. By diverting food from the local landfill, we hope to create a more sustainable community. Once processed, cured compost will be returned to subscribers providing them a tool to grow their own food, connect with the land and ultimately complete the cycle!”
