Black Bear Composting was founded in 2010 to play a role in organics recycling in Central Virginia. We were initially inspired by Poplar Manor Enterprises' food scrap collection program at Virginia Tech, and then other composting programs in Virginia and around the nation. Black Bear quickly joined the US Composting Council, retained the services of Coker Composting & Consulting and immersed ourselves in the world of composting.
In the summer of 2011, we found our home on a beautiful 47 acre farm in Crimora, located in Augusta County in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley.
While our story is short, it's just the beginning. Thanks to family, friends and colleagues for all of the support!
