Create Access To Compost For All Communities
LA Compost restores lost connections to the soil and one another. Cooperatively with a diverse network of partners within LA County, they co-create spaces for local compost access and engagement, restorative practices, and community empowerment. They support a healthy transition where food is never wasted but returned to the soil for the next cycle of life.
In 2021, LA compost diverted 804, 159 lbs. of organics from landfills. Additionally, 21,386 fruit and vegetable seedlings were distributed to community members. The funds raised will allow them to continue offering free composting access and education. It will also strengthen their ability to donate free finished compost to local community greening and food growing projects.
