Rudolph (Dolph) Geurds born and raised in New Jersey, owner of Terra Preta LLC and mastermind behind OneCompostCan that provides residential and commercial composting collection services.  Driven to make our planet and community a better place, Dolph has been rescuing food scraps from landfills and reinvesting them to enrich the health and biodiversity of our soil - making a very dark and fertile soil as found in the Amazon - thus Terra Preta.  Dolph and his family of 6 live together in Pennington.

Don Farineau owner of Living Beanstalk LLC is pursuing several plant positive projects to reduce the impact of global warming by embarking on a journey with Dolph, his son Hayden and his family to restore a 100 acre farm in Hopewell New Jersey, improve soil health and promote a commercially viable regenerative farm.  In addition, influence planet positive life-style habits with products and experiences to live a more sustainable and carbon light existence.  One of our key projects includes collaborating with OneCompostCan by Terra Preta to compost the food scraps rescued at GROUNDSWELL reFARMative.   Don has enjoyed New Jersey for the more than 18 years and currently lives with his partner in Asbury Park and looks forward to exploring and experience more of New Jersey in the years to come.
