Commitment to the Community Began When the South Kern Compost Manufacturing Facility Was Established
BALTIMORE, Maryland, November 6, 2018 – Synagro Technologies, Inc., the preeminent provider of biosolids and residuals solutions services in the United States since 1986, is pleased to announce that it received the Taft Community Garden’s (TCG) 2018 Friend of the Garden Award at the organization’s Fall Into Gardening Event on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at the TCG.
“The board of directors of the TCG thanks Synagro for their vital support of the projects at the garden,” wrote Orchel Krier, president, TCG. “With Synagro’s assistance, the TCG is improving steadily in providing opportunities for local families to grow fresh produce and harvest locally grown fruits from the garden. In addition to ensuring high-quality produce, the additional fruits and vegetables help provide quality nutrition at an extremely low price. Synagro’s support has built 50 beds, increasing the square footage of the garden to an incredible 2,700 square feet. We truly appreciate Synagro’s enthusiasm and help with these projects.”
Synagro’s Jamie Little, community engagement specialist, South Kern Compost Manufacturing Facility (SKCMF), was on hand to accept the award. “Our support of the TCG is part of Synagro’s annual commitment to the community from when the SKCMF was first established,” said Little. “We are honored to be recognized for supporting the TCG because its vision and mission aligns with our own and our value of servant leadership by providing the residents of Taft with an area to grow their own food in a safe, environmentally minded manner.
“Next month Synagro will make its annual donation of $10,000 to the TCG,” added Robert Rankin, site manager, SKCMF, Synagro. “Synagro also donates compost and our employees donate their time to provide composting education to the gardening community in an effort to support a cleaner, greener world. The donation is part the $75,000 annual commitment Synagro made to Taft and the surrounding communities when it established the SKCMF.”
