This morning, local Save Mart store manager- Lance Burnham, G.M. Lead- Sarah Flores and Recology deliver a compost donation of 10 tons to Community Life Garden in Reedley, CA.
Community Life Garden has been a long-time community partner and is a frequent at our Reedley Save Mart store.
Community Life Garden offers boxed gardens that are “adopted” by local families who come out and take care of the plants. All grown product from the gardens are then distributed to local food banks.
In farming communities, compost donations are great resources to help create means of availability for local residents facing hard times, while providing recreation for the families that farm the boxes, knowing that their efforts will be going towards helping other community members.
