Farm Philly

Community composting

FarmPhilly is developing a network of community-led composting projects across Philadelphia.

Community Compost Network


The Community Compost Network supports composting efforts at 13 sites across the city. The sites include community gardens, farms, and schools. At these sites, residents can compost their food and yard waste. FarmPhilly provides:

  • 12′ x 4′ x 4’ compost bins.
  • Composting supplies.
  • Educational materials and training.

Parks & Rec also operates the Fairmount Park Organic Recycling Center. There, residents can get free compost, mulch, and woodchips.
