Case Study: The Farm Between


The Farm Between and Highfields Center for Composting are both in agreement that this is a valuable and replicable model for small-scale community composters. It addresses the primary purpose of Highfields’ USDA Rural Development grant by directly building the composting capacity of two of Vermont’s rural and economically disadvantaged towns, Cambridge and Johnson. It closes the loop on the local food system and utilizes assets that currently exist in the community. The Farm Between is effectively helping to manage the towns' organic waste streams through a small scale, low-cost community composting program.
