The Center for Sustainable Living is resuming the Community Composting Project once again! Over the years we’ve begun to realize that our Community Composting Project is more about creating community (in an interesting way), than it is just the collection of food scraps. We’re happy to tell you that we will be resuming this project once again! Beginning in early May and going through the end of October, we will be collecting compost at the Northfield Farmers Market.

Days and times for the Farmers Market will be coming soon, as well as our weekly “compost collection day.”

Where: Northfield Farmers Market – Riverside Park, off 7th Street
at the Red Tail Farm stand.

Bring your food scraps to the market, and we will use them to make compost for local community gardens!

If you know of others wishing to compost, The Center for Sustainable Living can deliver a “compost kit” consisting of a bucket and information to anyone wishing to become a member of CSL. Membership is only $25/year. As well, if you have an address change or are no longer needing your compost bucket and would like to return it, send us an email at and we will accommodate your wishes!

To become a member and receive our Community Composting Kit, with your own bucket and composting guide, you can sign up at the Farmers Market, or send a check for $25 to:

The Center for Sustainable Living
PO Box 414
Northfield, MN 55057

Be sure to include your name, address, telephone, and email contact information, (along with the word “composting” in the memo blank of your check) so that we may deliver your bucket to your doorstep!

Happy Composting!!
