is to recycle food waste into compost and save the earth.
The average person throws away 20 lbs of food each month. When you become part of Table to Farm Compost, you can reduce that waste entirely. We take your food scraps and turn them into a living soil that sequesters carbon from the atmosphere down into the ground supporting plant health and microscopic life that keeps the soil food web alive and healthy.
We envision life on planet earth where healthy, living soils support a diversity of plants, animals, and people.
Climate change is one of the most urgent and potentially devastating issues of our time. Its effect on our planet’s people and biodiversity is unparalleled because we still have the opportunity to reverse its impact. Table to Farm Compost is meeting this challenge head on with its full cycle business model of diverting waste and recycling it into soil amendments.
Climate change is disproportionately impacting those who are socio-economically disadvantaged and is costing our planet trillions of dollars in disaster mitigation. Here in the southwest, the impact is heightened with unprecedented drought and wildfires impacting people, the planet, and the economy.
Carbon Farming in La Plata County
As climate activists and carbon farmers, we are working in the La Plata County region to divert waste from landfills, reduce methane emissions, and recycle organic materials such as food scraps and wood shavings into living soil.
This is the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced. This is not something you can like on Facebook.”

“Table to Farm Compost was a welcome addition to our operations,” said Rachel Cain, Co-Owner of Savannah Tree Farms. “Composting at this scale is complementary to our mission of sustainability and provides a great resource for our farm.”
Having a farm location like Savannah Tree helps us cost-share with a like-minded business and grow our operations to scale from table to farm to table.
