Dirt Rich’s biggest passion lies in spreading knowledge about the importance of soil fertility and a local product that helps gardeners and farmers maintain a holistic agricultural system. We have learned most of our processes from Elaine Ingham and base our product around encouraging healthy biology in our soils.
PROVIDING OPTIONS FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Our valley hasn’t had an option to divert their food waste unless they spearheaded the process themselves. Dirt Rich wants recycling our food waste to be an easy and affordable option for residents and businesses around the valley. Food waste composting is the most energy efficient form of recycling and provides local jobs and soil remediation product. The process is entirely local and more sustainable than any recycling options currently on the market.
A LIVING WAGE
Our roots of sustainability run deep. At Dirt Rich, we know that providing all employees with a living wage strengthens our community.
