An invitation to get creative in designing a solution for food waste.

Food waste is a major environmental problem, contributing to land fill and greenhouse gas emissions. Rather than waste kitchen scraps, we seek your help to design a prototype composting system that pays credits to households to separate food waste for collection and composting. The compost will be used to grow food for communities to support a local food economy.

Included in your registration is food, fun and connections

This event is aiming to create zero waste – make sure to bring along your keep cup and water bottle.
