Farm to Plate – Tracking the City’s Produce

Albuquerque the Magazine_November 2015by 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.

Downtown Grower’s Market gm_ski(1)

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!
