Thirty percent of the food consumed comes from the San Luis area and the rest comes from within 120 km. 80% Three different compost systems are used to meet the high demand for nutrient rich soil, increasing agricultural yields. Vermiculture is used in one system to take advantage of worm castings. A second system contains raw food waste, leaves, chicken waste, and animal beddings. Lastly, the largest system mixes nutrient deprived soil with yard clippings such as dried grasses, straw, and weeds.
