At Spa Hills Farm our mission is to create the final link in the chain to a full-circle, green waste-reduction solution for our economy and our local North Okanagan/Shuswap community.
We do this by collecting food waste and other organic material from businesses and buildings, that would otherwise go to a landfill and make chemical-free fertilizer.
We use it for the land we farm, where we grow wheat, straw and other crops to feed to our livestock.
We also sell the finished compost.
This compost helps the soil to retain water, which is very important in this dry area, especially considering the 2017 fire season.
This also helps cuts down on the use of non-organic fertilizer and soil amendments while helping companies and communities lower their greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).
Spa Hills Compost is proud to be a part of the sustainable movement to improve our environment and agricultural soil in the Okanagan and Shuswap regions.
When nothing is wasted, everything is gained.
