- From Table to Garden: Using Food Scraps in the Garden
- Composting for the Homeowner (University of Illinois Extension)
Trench composting could be an ongoing operation for your Lab. Imagine the benefits to your planter and garden soil if you had an never ending supply of kitchen scraps available to you year round.
Devise a strategy for a community collection operation for soil building kitchen scraps.
Identify restaurants as sources, the amount of scraps you would need each year, and a method and schedule for pick up.
Create a one-page overview of the project and its benefits that can be shared with your restaurant partners to win their participation.
