Composting is dirty work, but it’s one of our most powerful tools for a brighter future. Diverting organic waste to compost impacts climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions at landfills, promoting plant growth which pulls carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and building healthy soil to make farms and gardens more resilient to weather extremes.
Join us for a day-long extravaganza of composting work, education and fun.
In cooperation with Missouri Organic Recycling, we’ll be building a large composting system for Westport Commons Farm. This portion of the day may be loud and dusty and will involve some heavy machinery. We’ll also be working on a smaller community composting area. Feel free to come watch, from a short distance, and learn about what we’re doing.
