This Is Us: Vermont’s New Composting Law

Food waste costs everyone shocking amounts of money, seriously harms the environment, and—not for nothing—wastes food. Vermont’s new ban on food scraps in the trash aims to remedy that.

Much of this short, important story was recorded right here.

Much of this story was filmed right here at the Garden at 485 Elm at Compostville and inside the garden.

Seeing the garden from a bird’s eye view reminds me of the many, many hands who touch the garden and Compostville, resulting in what we see in the video. To me, that’s what a miracle is—each of us doing everyday activities that come together in something we step back from and observe with awe, then step right back into it.
