Education is vital to our mission. Learning about the science behind compost and about waste management in New York City can encourage us to create a healthy sustainable city & community.
How much organic waste can NYC’s community gardens turn into compost?
Our initial research topic was sparked by the news that the compost facility NYC sent its food waste shut down and closed (October, 2014). This event left NYC with tons of organic waste (literally!) and no place for them.
We wondered if a solution was right here within our community gardens. If this important communal asset can assist in this process, well… How much organic waste could we compost in our community gardens? Take a look to find out!
