On a spring morning in early April, 495 yards of compost were applied to a twenty acres hay field managed by Esoterra Culinary. This marked the first completed Colorado project under the banner of Restore Colorado. Farmer and Owner Mark DeRespinis returned to the front range to start Esoterra Culinary Garden after developing a farm at the world renowned Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs resort in northern New Mexico. Esoterra Culinary is building long term relationships with the most innovative and quality-focused food enterprises in the region.

The ecogrow compost came from A1 Organics, a family owned and operated organic recycling business serving the Front Range. The compost was spread by United Ecology, a Boulder-based alliance of regenerative practitioners.
