A Critterproof composter comes to Common Good City Farm

Rat-proof Compost

Although the colder weather means that Common Good City Farm isn’t growing vegetables, the farm is growing in different and exciting ways. If you’ve walked by LeDroit Park these past few weeks, you may have noticed a new structure on the farm. This past December, we installed new composter bins to help us more effectively create high quality compost from community garden and food waste for growing our crops. The new composter is a raised off the ground to enable efficient drainage and aeration, as well as sided with fencing to prevent rats and other ‘critters’ from accessing food waste.


Drop Off Your Compost Throughout the Winter

Even though the farm is closed for the winter, we are still accepting your food scraps for compost! We continue to process compost throughout the winter so that we have rich soil to plant our seeds in once the spring comes.

So please, feel free to drop off your compostable food scraps and we will gladly take them. Click HERE for more information on our composting program.
