COMPOST & WORMS
We compost on the farmette; using scraps from the kitchen, clippings from the gardens, oak leaves from the grounds, and horse manure from a local stable. The mix is either naturally aged and broken down as it matures in our compost pile or added to our worm bins.
Our worm bins are filled with red wiggler worms. They act as mother natures gift to composting; eating through our food scraps and garden waste and leaving behind a dark rich soil perfect for our garden beds. Their worm castings are used as natural fertilizer for our vegetables, herbs and flowers.
We partner with Suncoast Compost to manage our composting. Suncoast Compost is Tampa Bay’s first curbside composting service. Suncoast Compost help residents, businesses, and events divert their food waste. Together, we are reconnecting the food cycle. Curbside composting is $26/month and we have a drop-off composting site for just $16/month.
The farmette provides the perfect location to collect neighborhood yard clippings and grass cuttings. We welcome your natural (pesticide free) yard waste on the farm. Please contact us to schedule a drop off day!
