Cross posting in gardening.

Does anyone know if there are any community compost sites in/around DFW? We're moving to an apartment so I won't be able to compost. Is there are place where I can drop off my organic trash to contribute to a big community compost pile?

You might try a local community garden. We have several compost bins at LHCG. What part of DFW are you moving to? There are several gardens around that may have something.

A local organic gardening store might have some leads for your particular area.

What is LHCG? I'm in Grapevine, and our new apt is here too. Do you know of community gardens in Dallas?

I am going to check the Grapevine Botanical Society...

I'm in Lake Highlands - the far side of Dallas from you. I'm not sure who has community gardens overthere - there are several in East Dallas area. I'll ask around and see if anyone has any other ideas.

LHCG - is Lake Highlands Community Garden.

There is a community garden in Coppell. They may be closer to you and have composting opportunities.
