Gardens from Garbage is a city-wide initiative in Great Falls in collaboration with the City of Great Falls and the Great Falls Public School Electric City Agriculture Academy to develop community, school, and residential compost sites.  This community campaign has two goals:  one: annually producing hundreds of cubic yards of "good growing dirt" from thousands of tons of food waste while starving the local landfill while reducing greenhouse gas emissions;  two:  promoting the use of the "good dirt" to develop school and community gardens, thus providing locally grown nutritious food for children and families.
Sunburst initiated this program in response the the need of Montana families to have local food sources.  There are 47,000 Montana families without "food security", and a large percentage of food cost is the cost of transportation to our stores.  Available nutrient-rich compost encourages families to grow their own food. 


Our mission is to educate and guide organizations, neighborhoods, and communities in developing a sustainable local food source through composting, gardening, and year-round greenhouses.
