Farm to Plate – Tracking the City’s Produce
by Adam R. Baca, Albuquerque the Magazine, November 2015
“Ever wonder how long it’s been since that fruit or veggie you’re about to eat was plucked from the ground? We tracked Albuquerque’s produce – from farm-to-fork, and then some.” We are so grateful to our awesome farmer and Food Waste Management customers who dropped the hint to reporter Adam Baca that Soilutions is a part of the local food story.

Environmental Education Association of New Mexico Receives a $20,000 Power Up Grant from the PNM Fund
A PNM Power Up Grant to the Environmental Education Association of New Mexico (EEANM) supports the Tijeras Creek Rehabilitation Project, where Tijeras Creek flows through the Village of Tijeras, NM. The grant will provide resources to continue with improvements in the creek’s water quality and the reduction of erosion and stormwater management problems. It expands educational opportunities, increasing the number of field trips for high school science classes and community workshops for local volunteers. The field trips and workshops will provide hands-on experiences with green infrastructure, suppression of invasive plant species, and improvements in soil health and stabilization.

Partners With Soilutions
by Sarah Wentzel-Fisher – Grower’s Market Manager, Downtown Action Team Weekly Alert, March 10, 2011
The Downtown Grower’s market is moving towards creating a zero waste event through a new partnership with Soilutions. This year market vendors and patrons will be encouraged to compost or recycle wherever possible, facilitated by a Soilutions waste collection booth run by volunteers. In addition, vendors will be required to use compostable containers and promote the program to our customers.
In 2010 the Downtown Grower’s Market became the first solar powered market in the US, and we have again powered with CleanSwitch as our solar power sponsor. Here’s to a cleaner, greener, Grower’s Market!
