David Weickert was the farm manager at Mission of Mary Cooperative (619 Silver Lane) in Dayton’s Twin Towers neighborhood. They are an urban farming cooperative helping people on the city’s east side.
Now David has his own business, operating out of the same location. He runs Compost Dayton. He collects food scraps from people who pay a monthly fee and then composts those scraps. His customers can get the composted materials for their own use or donate the material to Mission of Mary or some other group.
“A lot of people don’t compost for one reason or other” he told me “but they want to be part of a sustainable food system. Those people are my customers. Over the last three years we’ve doubled our size each year.”
This service is a great way for you to reduce your waste and help the environment, along with helping out the local food and sustainable agriculture movement.
