Our partnership with the City of Boston to make composting accessible to families has finally begun. Now that we have a shed to store the bins, Eastie Farm has accepted an initial 20 Earth Machines and we’ve been selling them as of yesterday April 7th. The bins are $25 for Boston residents only, down from the $50 retail cost. The bins are rather light and can be carried a few blocks (best between a few people) if you live within that radius of 294 Sumner. They also break down concentrically so they can fit easily in the backseat of a car. They all come with a bottom that you screw into the body of the bin so they are pest proof!
Our AmeriCorps service member, Alex, lives very near to the farm and has been coordinating pickups. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and cc email@example.com. We’re accepting cash, check, and Venmo at the moment. Hope to hear from you soon.
