    About Us

    Perennial City is on a mission to transform vacant, unused land in North St. Louis into beautiful and productive urban farms. We have begun work on 2.5 acres in the West End and Visitation Park neighborhoods, North of Delmar. This is made possible by your support of Perennial City Composting! Subscribing with us doesn't just keep those valuable scraps out of the landfill – your finished compost serves as the foundation for growing a more vibrant and healthier St. Louis through urban food production. We're excited to grow with you!

    Founder of Perennial City, Registered Dietitian, and passionate gardener. She earned her Master's in Nutrition & Dietetics from Saint Louis University and considers herself a budding "soil dietitian." She is forever learning more about the fascinating microcosm that is the ground we walk on. Beth's vision is for Perennial City to be a catalyst for increased hyper local food production in the city of St. Louis and to cause people to rethink what we throw away.

    Perennial City co-founder, founder of Food Pedaler, and (most importantly) St. Louis's number one fan. Tim's universe expanded while completing a Permaculture Design course with special folks in Old North. He dreams of thousands of abandoned acres in North St. Louis transformed into food forests, adorned with beautiful homes built by the people who live in them. He's working to see a self-sustaining St. Louis that is a beacon for urban agriculture professionals from all over.


    "Perennial City is an extremely friendly organization doing AMAZING work for the STL community. They are always super prompt with customer service and helpful text reminders to set out your compost on your stoop. The subscription amount feels truly minimal in the broader context of the amazing service that this team is doing for the earth and for our community. Our would-be garbage turned into community farms?! Magic. Thanks guys."

    Leah, from Southwest Gardens

    "Great experience! I was looking for an option to start composting and stumbled upon the website. Beth responded very quickly to all my queries and made composting so easy!! Truly amazing service! We were provided with a nice magnet as a reminder on what we could compost and they provide us a fresh bucket every week with coffee chaff to control the odors if needed. Feel Greatful that I can do a little bit to help the planet and keep the good stuff out of landfill."

    Puneet, from Richmond Heights

    "Love this service! Such a small price to pay for a healthier planet. Plus, they always answer questions quickly and seem very friendly. If you're in a neighborhood they service, I highly recommend them!"

    Jordan, from University City

    "I could not have asked for a better experience! Perennial City makes composting so incredibly easy with clear and simple instructions and the convenience of picking it up at your door. I thought composting would be very difficult living in an apartment, but it has been the exact opposite thanks to Perennial City."

    Colleen, from Clayton
