Here at Green City Growers we strive to do business in an environmentally responsible way.
We source organic seeds, and practice organic growing from compost to pest control. Now we’ve found a new way to reduce our environmental impact while increasing the quality of our service. We’re happy to announce that we are now working with Read Custom Soils in Canton, Ma. Through Read we receive soil in reusable bags which are sent back to Read and promptly reused. As you can imagine, this greatly reduces the waste of throw away bags. After all, we go through a lot of soil here at GCG!
We’re also happy that this new source is more local than our old supplier in Vermont and that they mix the soil for us, which reduces the prep time here at the office, making our lives easier through the busy spring season.
We have many new exciting developments in the works. Stay tuned for more updates from your friendly neighborhood backyard farmers!
