I want to say a special thank you to a few businesses that have been supportive of Grow It Away from the beginning.
SMALL WORLD CATERING
The team at Small World Catering have been supportive from the beginning, helping me set up the first composter, donating old mayo buckets and giving me the name Compost Lady.
GOOD BEANS COFFEE
We love our local coffee brewer! Not only for the chitchat and tasty cuppacoffee, but also for their values as a company. They pride themselves on sourcing their coffee in a socially responsible manner and they were hyped to get involved and compost their coffee waste.
Metabolic is a leading sustainability consultancy firm working with corporations, municipalities and governments around the world. They signed up in January 2022 as one of Grow It Away's first corporate members. Talking the talk and walking the walk!
After a few months of struggling to find space, the Association of De Ceuvel came to the rescue and found me a spot of land on their grounds (pictured above). We plan to make the composting station at De Ceuvel an educational spot.
Coco Mat Haarlemmerplein
Gursel at Coco Mat Haarlemmerplein, one of the friendest guys in town, was very kind to me at the beginning of my venture and let me set up my first ever composting system in the shop garden, in exchange for some weeding and gardening duties. A deal I was very happy to agree on.
