Community-Powered Composting – Soil Cycle

Date grant awarded: June 12, 2019

Soil Cycle is a bicycle-powered curbside food scrap collection non-profit in the Missoula, Montana community. We are dedicated to completing and promoting the natural cycle of garden to table, table to garden. Soil Cycle offers a valuable service to members that promotes and enables self-sufficiency and sustainability. Inspired by reducing waste, our project wants to show the community how we can turn their wasted food into natural fertilizer.

By bringing the food system and our waste to the forefront, we hope to empower people to rethink their own lifestyles. The Pollination Project grant will allow us to buy a new bicycle trailer so we can haul three times as much food scraps and increase our waste diversion efforts.
