Project Compost is a student-run, student-funded unit of the Associated Students of the University of California, Davis (ASUCD). Four student staff members, many interns, and even more wonderful volunteers cooperatively manage Project Compost. Here you can find guides for composting, ways to compost in your own home, find out more about Project Compost, and how to get involved with Project Compost!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
