Rouge Produce and Every Ridge Farm are providing an alternative to sending food to the landfill. Every Ridge Farm takes food scraps from Rouge and composts it on-site.

This natural fertilizer also reduces the greenhouse gas emissions from the farm, and the groups hope this strategy will be deployed by others to reduce the impact of food waste.
