Welcome

Sibley SoilWorks is a non-profit collaborative community project that joins private citizen groups with the city of Augusta-Richmond County and Augusta Canal Authority. This initiative will recycle aquatic noxious weeds along the Augusta Canal which are plaguing the historic Sibley Mill hydro-generators and be converted into rich composted soil. The compost will be given to the families of the re-vitalized Harrisburg community to build vegetable gardens and become more self sufficient. Augusta University student interns will also be involved in the project doing research studies on composting processes. The Sibley SoilWorks, in conjunction with Georgia Food Oasis and G.R.O.W Harrisburg also promises to educate the community on healthy food choices and innovative ways to cook them. Whole Foods Market and several local restaurants have pledged their support for various resources needed in the project.
