Cedar Grove donates, delivers compost to Hillside Parking Plots Community Garden in Kent

Cedar Grove made a recent donation of 20 yards of compost and delivered it to the World Relief Hillside Parking Plots Community Garden in Kent.

The public garden empowers refugees, immigrants and the local community to improve food access, build community and foster economic independence. The garden is also a practice of environmental stewardship through the incorporation of a depaved parking lot, rain gardens and water catchment into the garden design.

According to World Relief, by the end of capital improvements, the garden will be cleaning and diverting over a million gallons of stormwater each year.

The compost, created from the city of Kent’s curbside and commercial organics recycling programs, is recycled in Maple Valley and has returned to the public gardening space to grow food for Kent residents.

This was the second round of compost donations to this location by Cedar Grove; the first facilitated by the King Conservation District. The most recent donation was part of the Nature Conservancy’s Rooted in Puget Sound campaign, occurring this month throughout the region.

Cedar Grove is an industry-leading environmental solutions company based in Seattle, with landscape yards in Maple Valley, Woodinville and Everett.
