The Soilutions family is three branches working together to return organics – things that were once alive – to our depleted desert soils. We offer a suite of services to help our community complete this cycle, including: Organics collection via Food Waste Management, Organics receiving, processing and sales at our Compost Facility, and Organics utilization consultation via Adaptive Terrain Systems.
Soilutions. Complete the Cycle.
Soilutions now has an “artist-in-residence”! Michelle Korte Leccia transforms coffee and tea grinds, dried fruit and vegetable peels, eggshells, woodchips, scrap metal, and other intriguing materials that would otherwise be composted, recycled, or landfilled, into art. Contact us if your group is interested in a hands on workshop at her “Schucker Shack”. You will learn a simple technique of how to make a textural and adhesive pulp using junk-mail and paper packing. Everyone goes home with a unique piece of assemblage art – all ages welcome.
The Tijeras Creek Remediation Project provides hands on learning opportunities for students interested in science, natural resources, biology, and environmental design. This story highlights a working field trip with students from Del Norte High School and NexGen Academy from the New Mexico Mesa Program. The New Mexico Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement or NM Mesa, is a pre-college program that introduces students to careers in math, engineering, science or other related fields. The students had a chance to plant trees at the project site and make STEM connections to learn about water in New Mexico.
Looks like it takes beer to make it a story, but we’ll take it! A little coverage on how partnering with Soilutions cuts waste in the food service industry. We look forward to the opportunity next time to talk about how composting food waste helps Albuquerque lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Somebody let Jim and Paulina talk on TV about the difference between soil, dirt, compost and mulch. Then they let them play with worms. Thanks Morning Brew for a fun morning! You can check out the video here.
