Mission: Our aim as volunteer organizers of this initiative is to provide opportunities that are not feasible through private business or city ventures, and to help our neighborhoods grow in self-sufficient and sustainable ways. Our goal is to promote self-sufficiency, environmental stewardship, and the merits of a healthy lifestyle.

Where do I dispose of garden waist?
