ORGANIZATION: HandsOn Bay Area

Image_202205201559

Project Overview

The Community Compost Hub Program teaches the community how to divert their compostable food waste into gardening compost. The hub is a place for community members to gain hands-on experience with grass-roots food waste management. Through their workshops, volunteer workdays, and community resources, they equip families with the skills and means to convert their food scraps into rich gardening compost to grow healthy fruits and vegetables.

Volunteers will support this project by integrating food scraps into a compost pile, sifting compost, and more!

About Fresh Approach

Fresh Approach is a nonprofit organization that aims to create long-term change in local food systems, by connecting California communities with healthy food from California farmers and expanding knowledge about food and nutrition. As part of the industrious EPA community, they seek to foster a more communal growing, sharing, and eating of fresh, local produce.
