How We Compost

Getting started is easy! First, you tell us you want to be part of the solution!

We transport your food waste and other organics to our facility in Salmon Arm where it is mixed together with our proprietary blend and set aside to heat up to a very high temperature, killing all pathogens and other unwanted critters.

From there, it gets turned a few times and then screened. We use this finished compost on our own agricultural fields, where it fertilizes the soil, increases water retention and helps our wheat and other food crops grow. 

That wheat or straw is fed to our own happy livestock, who produce food and round and round we go again in the food cycle.

We also sell the compost to other farmers, gardeners and landscapers.

From food, back to food.
