Compost Committee Chair
The Sixth Street Community Center has received a grant from the city to implement a composting plan in conjunction with El Jardin del Paraiso, a park and garden that runs from 4th to 5th Streets between Avenues C and D.
The Community Supported Agriculture program run through Sixth Street has created a committee to coordinate with the garden and get the project underway.
We’re very excited to establish composting as an alternative for disposal of food and garden waste by members of the CSA and El Jardin, and eventually any interested local households.
The committee has put a ComposTumbler together at El Jardin, and committee members have been putting compostable waste into the tumbler.
