Soil Cycle is expanding our drop-off corals, thanks to an afternoon of hard work with GUTS!, MUD, and Home Resource crews. Be on the look-out for this stylish new drop-off site this summer when you go looking for materials at Home Resource or to borrow tools from MUD!
~Specials thanks to our friends from GUTS! who learned basic power skills and expressed their creativity~
Have you ever heard of an Earth Tub? Meet ours! It processes food scraps in a jif- and creates lovely soil. Pictured above you can see Hannah scraping out the last of the finished soil from our spring load!

Soil Cycle Spotlight
Meet Gab! They are a bike loving, art-making, long time trail service crew member, that spends their off seasons (and time between hitches!) helping out around Soil Cycle. From sawyering trees at the farm, to delivering compost in a snowglobe, they go above and beyond to help us complete the cycle.
Thanks for all your hard work and dedication Gab! Happy Trails!
