Get involved with Grow It Local to plant and harvest your own food. Learn how to turn your kitchen scraps and garden organics into compost.

Whether it’s a small pot of herbs on your windowsill or a big veggie patch in your backyard, by growing your own food and composting you can:

  • reduce the amount of waste headed to landfill
  • enrich your soil and help retain moisture
  • defeat plant diseases
  • eat healthy produce at home
  • contribute to a more sustainable environment.

Not to mention, it’s fun, satisfying and can save you money!
