Summer 2014: Hot, Wet and Indoors!

A couple of throwbacks from our Open House Party back in May

It feels like Autumn is slowly creeping in on us, but what a summer! We have made tremendous strides with our new home at 11 Forest Rd (what was the previous Nederland Biofuel Building), which we endearingly refer to as "The Barn." The tubs are in full swing, and we are churning up soil amendment for you to apply to overwinter for next year's garden. Our team has been working to slowly make it feel more like home for our little non-profit. I encourage you to swing by and say hello!

View From The Handlebars! (Frozen Dead Guy Days Cameo)

Oh, the wonders of technology!  We've got a little clip to share from our collection during Frozen Dead Guy Days:


The GoPro will be joining us for more runs of the route over the coming months, so look out for upcoming footage of Ned in all its glory.

Happy Composting!

Thank you, LUSH, for your amazing volunteer workers!

Did you know that LUSH Cosmetics:

  1. Has preservative-free, cruelty-free, natural & minimally packaged beauty supplies..?
  2. Donates $ to grassroots organizations via Charity Pot..?
  3. AND incentivises their employees to help local grassroots organizations..!?

    What an inspiring business model!!

    We made serious progress "beautifying" our space!

    As you can imagine, we composters aren't known for our hygiene...so this gift was especially appreciated!

    Check out the Lush website for ethical and delicious beauty supplies!

Nederland is COLD, but we can still COMPOST! (7° F Outside & 130° in Bertha's Belly!)


Our composting tub, "Bertha," is cooking at 130 degrees, even though it's only 7 degrees outside! (See all the steam coming out?)

Dedicated volunteers turn and mix the tubs daily- even in the freezing winter weather! We won't have to do this in the snow for much longer- we'll be moving to our new INDOOR site!  Hooray!

Thanks for all your support!

Winter Greens Grow Year-Round Using Our Soil Amendment:

It is possible to grow veggies year-round in the freezing mountains of Colorado!

One of our rock star customers has filled her small greenhouse with raised beds to grow heirloom varieties of brassicas (cabbage, mustard, etc) and alliums (onion, etc) genus- which can tolerate the cold winter nights.

Send us an email if you have grown something awesome using NedCompost!
