Music in the Garden

Composer and singer Marc Berger performed with his band in The Secret Garden on July 10. His music which he calls ‘American Roots’ is a mix of country, rock and folk. The garden was simply lovely in the evening light thanks to members who showed up in the morning to make it picture perfect. Throughout the concert Marc told stories about his life in New York city and trips to Montana. Marc’s most recent album ‘Ride’ is already downloaded to my Spotify account.

From Black Earth Compost – Skip the Straw!


If you’ve heard about the “Skip the Straw” movement then you know how bad single-use plastic is for the environment!

We wanted to offer a refreshing alternative to plastic for your summer drinks with locally-made glass straws. Not only do plastic straws pollute our oceans and bodies, but they also pollute our compost here at Black Earth.
(Earth will be thankful for your switch, but so will our team down at the compost site sifting through finished compost). 

The straws are durable enough to withstand falls onto the wooden floor
(not in the hands of a toddler throwing them onto cement, but a cell phone screen would’t either).
Another perk to these glass straws is the lack of disintegrating paper in your mouth from cardboard straws or metallic taste via metal straws.

Get trendy with these green tinted glass straws that are hand-crafted by The Witch Dr. in Salem, MA. They stand 10″ tall and come in packs of 6 with a pipe cleaner. You can purchase them on our Black Earth Compost store, but they will be mailed via The Witch Dr., not delivered by us.

As part of our mission and who we are, we support local artists and businesses!
