Took delivery today of some very nice composted soil with which to begin our restaurant composting initiative and organic garden. Beginning with a humble patch off carlton with a great exposure and gently-sloping turf, we hope to put in 16 raised beds that will in time receive the composted by-products of local kitchens & coffee shops and provide even more yummy organic veggies for customers and neighbors. Why do this? We are striving to become as landfill-free as possible and while i might talk trash from time to time, we're very serious about our footprint as a business and restaurant and hope others will feel the same way. Belmont is, in large part, a neighborhood of gardens and people who are forever improving their properties. A walking tour of yards and gardens here would reveal an incredible reservoir of urban plots that feed families and freezers for the fall and winter. Hopefully our small part in all of this will help to contribute to waste awareness while lessening our load to the landfill. I know the worms are really happy!
