"At Pleasant Farms, we have our own composting program, for which we ride a bicycle to collect food scraps from houses and businesses. Jonathan [Scheffel, farm director,] has a trailer, and signs up for people on the South Side, and supplies them with a bucket. After a month, he rides a bike over, collects food scraps, and deposits them at Nature’s Little Recyclers. Waste is transformed by worms into growing soil that goes back into the garden."
