Up hills and down alleyways, the stretch limo of bikes churns compost with eco-purpose. This bicycling recycling program collects your compost and delivers it to urban farmers, restaurants, and gardeners who grow local produce. The secret's in the mechanics. These mobile composters ride a special cargo bike with a wheel barrow-like bucket fitted between the handlebars and front wheel. Aerobic to the max. Budding urban agriculturists located inside the triangle of Airport Blvd., I-35, and Lady Bird Lake, or by visiting HOPE Farmers Market can become part of this symbiotic digestive system of Austin.
