O-Town Compost Takes Over Orlando

December 2021

As we approach the end of the year, it is a time to both reflect on the success of the past year and look forward to the new year.

One of our key partners, O-Town Compost aims to reduce the amount of food waste going to Orange County’s landfill and make compost to support our local food system.

This year, O-Town Compost made a lot of progress in their mission. They started off with only 100 individual subscribers growing to 450 subscribers by year’s end. They have also improved the efficiency of their business by acquiring a large commercial truck that allows pick up of over 3,000 tons of compost and delivery back to their composting site in one trip. With their business growing and needing more space to operate, O-Town Compost recently moved their operations to the 4Roots Co-Op.

This is just the beginning for O-Town Compost! Next year, they aim to reach 700 individual subscribers and continue to build partnerships across Central Florida.

Give The Gift Of Nature This Holiday Season

4Roots is offering a limited-time opportunity to permanently name 180 trees that will be planted on our Farm Campus.

For $1,000 each, one of these beautiful trees, scattered around the Farm Campus will bear the name of you or a loved one. We will make it easy for you by providing a certificate with a location map for gifting. And most of all, your donation will support our mission to build a better food future for our community.

Each tree naming right purchased will also enter a chance to win a $28,000 luxury trip for 8 to the Bahamas generously donated by Tavistock! This exclusive getaway will include a five-day, four-night stay at the luxurious Discover Albany.

Please contact Tamara with 4Roots by phone at 407.775.6424, or by email at tamarad@4rootsfarm.org for more information. Tree location selections are on a first come first serve basis.

See What’s Next: The Biggest Little Farm

If you need a change from those festive Hallmark movies this holiday season, check out The Biggest Little Farm on Netflix! The documentary follows a couple through their journey of starting a sustainable farm in Los Angeles, California.

The Biggest Little Farm provides a realistic depiction of the complexities of the farming industry and the ups and downs of farming ethically. The documentary delves into an important topic synonymous with the 4Roots mission: the importance of the natural ecosystem to the farming industry and our entire planet.

4Roots recently hosted a screening of The Biggest Little Farm to raise awareness with our partners and friends and showcase the important role the future 4Roots Farm Campus will play in our community.
