DPR Community Compost Cooperative Training

DC Parks and Rec (DPR) has an extensive community compost cooperative network that allows over 1000 trained residents to compost food scraps, mixed with garden waste, in critter- and smell-proof compost bins across the District. This webinar with DPR’s Josh Singer is an online version of the 1-hour training needed to join any of the 56 compost cooperative sites in DC. The training will also be useful to anyone who wants to start composting in their backyards.

About Community Food Rescue and the DC Food Recovery Working Group

Community Food Rescue, a program of Manna Food Center, is the coordinated food recovery network of Montgomery County, Maryland. This program enhances the good work of businesses, individuals, and organizations that already recover and redistribute perfectly good food to people experiencing hunger.

The DC Food Recovery Working Group comprises a variety of partners from food banks, non-profits, and for-profits working on food recovery, DC government agencies, local environmental and sustainability organizations, and food recovery advocates. The Working Group promotes food recovery programs, organizations, and resources, and develops new food recovery partnerships, programs, and resources for greater DC.
