Education and Action

There are two parts to Project Compost: Education and Action

The Education portion means we offer free composting workshops through the Experimental College, make presentations to clubs and classrooms, as well as tabling at various events. If you would like us to make a presentation at a sustainability event, please contact us at projectcompost@gmail.com

The Action portion of the program consists of compost pickups. Each Day we pick up food matter from the ASUCD Coffee House, coffee kiosks on campus, the Pomology Department, and several labs on campus. This organic matter is then composted in windrows on the Student Farms.
