About the Organization:
Reunity Resources is a 501c3 not for profit organization located in Santa Fe, NM that models a closed loop food system, turning food waste into valued products and back again. The organization has 3 branches: food collection, compost operation, and farm. We collect food waste from local public schools, restaurants, and residents, bring it back to our property where we turn that food waste into premium compost and vermicompost, then use the compost on our farm fields to grow high quality and diverse vegetables for the community.

The farm, Reunity Farm, is about 1.5 acres in cultivation and is a highly trafficked area by visitors and volunteers. We focus on growing diverse vegetables for local sale at our on-site farm stand, farmers market, and to restaurants involved in our food collection program as well as offer a flexible CSA style program and donate all produce we can. 2020 will be Reunity Farm’s second official season- our goals are to continue focusing on and improving produce accessibility, community engagement, and to increase farm production.
