LA Compost
Springboard Fund, 2016

LA Compost’s goal is to connect people with the soil that feeds them. By creating composting hubs at schools, neighborhood organizations and community gardens, LA Compost creates a loop from farm to table, to compost, and back to farm again. Local residents are encouraged to keep organics in their own neighborhoods, rather than sending them to landfills, and to create rich soil in the same zip code where food was originally consumed. Currently, LA Compost has eight community compost hubs throughout LA County, and plans to expand to many more.
