“Together we are building an incredible sustainable local food system. And it all starts with building fertile soil.” David Bill and Faith Van de Putte, Midnight’s Farm
2015 is the International Year of Soil! To celebrate David and Faith of Midnight’s Farm wanted to further invest in their compost operation with the purchase of a small trommel screen so they could offer finely screened compost to their customers. Last week they announced they had been awarded a $10,000 challenge grant towards this trommel from the Human Links Foundation. The grant was dependent on their raising an additional $10,000. Inspired by the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model they asked for “investors” to buy their compost forward, offering different options to suit different needs. In just 48 hours the matching funds were raised!
David and Faith want to THANK all those who joined their Compost CSA and the Human Links Foundation, the Soil Conservation District for their initial grant, Tim O Neil of Engineered Compost Systems, Tami Thompson from Terre Source, Nathan Hodges, and Peggy Bill.
