Full Circle

Last Friday was a particularly rewarding day for the Dirt Hugger crew on a personal level. In the morning we received the now customary delivery of Brew Dew (a mix of spilled beer and yeast) from Full Sail. We apply Brew Dew as a final ingredient to our windrows to add moisture plus some nutrient content. It’s the perfect cap to a blend of Gorge local yard debris, fruit, and food.

Later that day, we delivered compost to Full Sail brewmaster, Jim Kelter, and his wife Peggy. As I stood there after dumping a load of compost in his driveway he invited me to sample a soon-to-be-released bottle of Session Fest. Driving away from the delivery I couldn’t help but reflect on how rewarding it was to be part of a cradle-to-cradle transaction in the same community, in the same day. Full Sail brought us their beer by-product, we delivered product made from that by-product to an employee and he returned the favor with beer that created the by-product.

It may not make us rich, but it sure is fun to be in the composting business.
