About This Event

This Sunday, June 9th, Springfield Compost Collective will hold the 2nd Annual Talking Trash fundraiser & party at Cherry Picker Package x Fare from 5 - 8:30pm. Attendees will meet like-minded community members, learn about composting, hear updates about our new business and residential food scrap pick up programs, and meet other 417 businesses who are working to make a difference in our community. 

There will be live music, an auction and raffle with some amazing items, including a Kayak and a Kuat rack. Enjoy FREE food from our good friends at Ott's Pasta. Drinks will be available for purchase. 

Soap Refill Station, James River Basin Partnership, and Ozark Mountain Flower Truck will be on-site.
