The Compost Co-operative

The Compost Co-operative is a worker-owned co-op that hauls food scraps and other organic material for residential and commercial customers to local composting facilities. Driven by environmental and racial justice, we are committed to providing opportunities for ownership, meaningful work, and housing for folks impacted by incarceration. The Compost Co-op and Oxbow Design Build Cooperative have partnered to create safe and affordable housing for co-op members through the purchase and renovation of a multi-unit in Greenfield, Massachusetts. This is just the beginning! Conversations continue and the vision of cooperative land stewardship on a larger scale is continuing to develop.
