Composting: Reducing Food Waste to Create a Sustainable Food Future

Saturday, September 27, 2014  
2:30 PM
The EPA estimates that 12% of our trash is food waste. Instead of being composted, we send it to the landfill where it continues to rot and release gases and contaminants into the environment.

Composting is an easy and sustainable alternative to this wasteful practice. Learn how you can incorporate composting into your everyday life.
