ORGANIZATION: Solana Center for Environmental Innovation

Help run the Solana Center's Food Cycle Program, turning food waste into a high-quality soil supplement, and closing the loop of organic waste! Volunteers help process and tabulate incoming organic material, maintain compost piles, and prep buckets to be returned to program members for more collection. This project is great for those that are not sensitive to the "ick" factor and want to get VERY hands on with waste reduction!

The Food Cycle Program is a co-op where San Diego County residents and small businesses preserve their organic waste using the Bokashi method and then deliver it to Solana Center to be turned into a nutritious soil amendment that is distributed back into the community. This process reduces tons of waste sent to the landfill, reduces methane pollution, and creates a healthy soil supplement for San Diego gardens!

Project Requirements & Important Notes

Attire: Wear closed-toe shoes and clothing that can get VERY dirty.

Physical Ability: This activity can be quite physically intensive and pretty messy! Must be able to wield a pitchfork, push a wheel borrow, and lift buckets of up to 30 lbs. Some accommodations can be made, please ask.

Safety: Volunteers must be vaccinated against COVID-19 to volunteer with the Solana Center for Environmental Innovation. Volunteers will need to provide proof of vaccination on event day whether through an issued Covid-19 vaccination card or through California's Digital Vaccine Record.
