Join the ‘SOILebration’!

Soilutions is excited to kick off its 20th Anniversary with a ‘SOILebration’ – We Are All Part of the Cycle! The theme celebrates the connections we share by completing the organics cycle—from those who commit to recycling their organic waste instead sending it to the landfill to those who return those organics back to the earth. The event is free and open to the public.

There's a great lineup of musicians planned, including Boris McCutcheon and the Mighty Salt Licks, Kimo Liscious, and Andean music by Fidel and Marcelino. There will also be an ‘Ode to Compost’ open mic contest, with prizes for best original song celebrating composting and organics.

Come join us on Saturday, November 12th, from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Soilutions composting yard, 9008 Bates RD SE in Albuquerque.
