Compost By Bike

Finally, we found a better way to make the best of our market compost! HOPEFM is teaming up with the East Side Compost Pedallers, who collect compost at the Market and deliver it directly to East Austin farms this fall (including the HOPE Community Farm!). Market-goers are invited to stop by the Pedallers’ station to learn more about this great program.

More about East Side Compost Pedallers
“The Pedallers offer an intensely local, completely bike-powered compost collection program dedicated to enriching the Austin community. We collect compostables from homes & businesses and give them directly to urban farmers to help grow more local food.

The Compost Pedallers offer an authentically sustainable and delightfully original compost recycling program. Sure, we’re here to help you save your compostables from ending up in the landfill, but we refuse to stop there. All of the organic material our pedallers collect goes straight to the closest urban farm or gardening project to be composted so that they can be used to grow more healthy, local food. Then, we complete the natural cycle by taking that food right back to the comunity– delivering it to farmers’ markets, to restaurants, and even directly to your front porch!”
