Think Globally... Act Locally!

ReSoil Sacramento is a community compost collective that aims to close the local food loop - Farm-to-Fork-to-Farm. We build healthy soil to grow edible gardens and green, climate-resilient neighborhoods with the food scraps collected from our Partner Restaurants and Residents of the Sacramento community.

ReSoil is a program of the Green Restaurants Alliance Sacramento. GRAS is dedicated to growing a regenerative food community in our Farm-to-Fork Capital through education and action. We aim to make sustainable practices available to all.

ReSoil advocates for three things that we can do to address our changing climate:   1) compost, 2) grow our own food, and 3)  build regenerative, climate-resilient landscapes. In these turbulent times, Composting is something we can all do to reduce greenhouse gases and regenerate the health of our community.

Join us! Every Sacramentan is invited to help make Sacramento a model for sustainable/ regenerative food communities.

OUR IMPACT

Composting reduces greenhouse gases (mostly methane which has 25x more potency than CO2) and aids the sequestration of carbon back into the soil. Each month, ReSoil Sacramento diverts approximately 20,000 lbs. According to the EPA, this has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of driving 18,600 miles. One million pounds of food scraps diverted has a GWP of driving 929,000 miles, or driving from SF to NYC 310 times.

Compost is the organic matter that builds healthy soil, providing many benefits: water retention, bio-diversity, reduction of heat-island effects and erosion, remediation and carbon sequestration. Healthy soil is the foundation of healthy, resilient ecosystems. ReSoil has created an estimated 330,000 lbs of compost for Sacramento soil.
