CalRecycle - Community Composting for Green Spaces. Due 10/20. $4.24M Available.

Opportunity Title:

Community Composting for Green Spaces


The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) administers this program to increase the number of community groups operating small-scale composting programs supporting green spaces within Priority Population communities. This effort will also increase local composting capacity while expanding community knowledge about the benefits of compost use and proper composting techniques. Green spaces include community gardens, urban farms, and other public spaces where small-scale composting is appropriate. This program will assist community groups in overcoming barriers to starting and managing community-based composting programs by providing targeted resources. These resources will increase the ability of community groups to divert materials from landfill, increase their knowledge and experience with composting, and help foster climate resilience. Other goals of the program include identifying success factors for community-scale composting and providing models for effective and sustainable community composting operations.
