A Code Of Return

WHY COMPOST ?

Our food waste and other organic materials are the fuel for teeming life. These microorganisms break down the materials into a rich amendment called COMPOST.

There are more microorganisms in a teaspoon of soil then there are people on the earth.

Soil micro-organisms are so abundant that 70 to 80 percent have yet to be identified. Home to a quarter of our planet's biodiversity.

The United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization states that annually 75 billion tons of soil (25 million acres) of arable land is lost to erosion, water logging, and salination. The United States alone is losing soil 18 times more rapidly then it is forming it.

at the same time........

If we have declared a war against the soil itself, then we are literally committing a species level suicide.

- Dr. Vandana Shiva

MEET THE TEAM

Founders
Michael & Maria Wedum

Inspired by the the symbiotic connection to all things living, we made a decision to be an open participant. Working with the laws of nature. ​A cycle of return. An ethical code. Ethics to not only humanity, but that of the land. Code of return embodies these principles. The root word COR represents the heart. The very essence of our drive.

Seeking sustainable solutions through Nature's proven rhythm. The passion behind this team began with finding new approaches for problems created by current agricultural practices. A target of creating a closed loop community was born. Together, the team has created a pilot for the new pathway to provide projections, create awareness, and feasibility for making this idea a reality.

Our firstborn:

The great Jasmine Anderson from Richmond, VA.

Jas joined us for the summer as a compost warrior intern. An experience we shall never forget!

Noah Keefer teaches English in Bluffton, South Carolina. Noah is passionate about teaching students positive solutions to issues. He started the first ever composting program at the school, where he teaches kids the composting process and the environmental benefits. When he is not educating the youth of America, Noah spends his time working with his personal compost piles and garden. He is also a chicken dad to three girls- Blanche, Sophia, and Lucy. Noah is passionate about teaching others the fundamentals of composting!
