Weis Markets, through the council, plans to support the Million Tomato Compost Campaign, through which composters donate compost to community gardens for growing tomatoes. It is planned to start in the spring.
These are the take aways, as I see it:
- It takes real commitment to make a sustainability program work. Whitewashing normal operations won’t be enough.
- Neither will not making the program cost-effective. Weis Markets has provided a good role model.
- Connecting the produce department to gardening sales has to boost sales.
