  • Does anyone know of any community composting sites? It seems a waste that so many people are trashing useful composting matter. If anyone has a garden and would accept donations to their compost pile, let me know.

    Also, for people near downtown, the Church of Holy Colors takes compost. They're on SE 5th Ave & Main, behind the place where RePurpose Project was before they moved.

    FYI, I was at the Seattle airport recently and saw that they have composting right along side the recycling and trash bins. In an AIRPORT. If only we could get the airport and City of Gainesville to get that enlightened.

    Hi! Suzi Liz, I live just across the street from you at Timberlane. I could take your compost and give you some of last year's compost for your fig tree. Thanks for the info about Starbucks, that's great to know!
    text me at[masked] for my address

    Contact Chris Cano with Gainesville Compost. He is taking compostables from various restaurant locations and composting on site as well as at other gardens. It's also pedal powered! So cool.

    That's pretty amazing for an apartment complex! I live in Magnolia Park(e!), which is a kind of office/restaurant complex on NW 39th Ave., only a few apartments here. I probably won't suggest composting for a community project here, but I like the idea of a small, portable composter someone mentioned earlier.

    Suzy, at my last apartment, we convinced management to let us start a small community garden with a compost pile adjoining it. Perhaps your complex might be willing to do the same? (Location was The Legacy at Fort Clarke in NW Gainesville)

    I'm interested in any answers to this question, too. I live in a third-floor apartment. I have flowers and a fig tree growing on my two sunny balconies, but composting is limited in my situation. I would be happy to donate. Also, various nearby SBucks are often giving away coffee grinds in huge bags for gardeners.
