Growing food removes valuable nutrients from the soil. Composting returns those nutrients to the soil, thus completing the cycle.
Food that decomposes in a landfill releases methane gas, a greenhouse gas 86 times more potent than carbon dioxide over a 20 year lifespan. Plus, saving food from ever making it to the landfill reduces the need for more and larger landfills.
Household customers are eligible for free finished compost when it is available. Customers who don't need compost have the option of donating their share of the finished product to local school and community gardens.
Table to Farm Compost is the only curbside composting in Durango! We make it easy for you to go green by providing a 5-gallon odor-free bucket for your food scraps that is swapped with a clean bucket at your curb once a week. Plus, customers are eligible to receive free finished compost when available. No mess, no work, no food waste.
Table to Farm Compost is owned and operated by Monique DiGiorgio who has been an environmental activist her entire life. Being at the helm of a compost business integrates Monique's love of the land with her passion to help create a better planet, one bucket at a time. She brings a career of business and non-profit development to Table to Farm Compost and hopes to grow this incredible business to serve the Durango and surrounding community through excellent customer service and an entrepreneurial spirit.
Table to Farm Compost was founded in early 2016 by David Golden and Emily Bowie with the goal of reducing household food waste in Durango. When they moved to Durango in the Spring of 2015, they found themselves living in an apartment with no choice but to send their food scraps out with the trash. So they decided to create Table to Farm Compost, empowering not only themselves but also the Durango community, to save their scraps from the landfill.
Monique is the Managing Director of Local First and runs Table to Farm Compost as a way to keep her connected to the planet while providing a much-needed service to the community. Monique holds a B.S. in Biology from the University of Notre Dame and brings a science-based perspective to her work and approach in life. She is excited to bring this background and her love of the outdoors and the environment to composting and waste reduction. Monique has spent much of her career working with non-profits that protect the planet and its resources and wildlife, so Table to Farm Compost is a great way for her to have her hands in the dirt (or trash to recover waste), while growing plants and food! She loves all the things the Southwest has to offer and has called Durango home for almost two decades.
