Back this NYC!


This might be the best $15 bucks I've spent this month!

New York Compost: Connecting the City to the Soil Back Project.
NY compost want to use low-cost cargo bicycles to collect food scraps from restaurants, containerize them, and deliver them to farmers who would be in the city for farmer's markets and CSA drop-offs. The farmers would then back-haul the food scraps to their farms and process them into compost. Thus creating less waste and better soil - win, win!

They are hoping to launch a pilot program in mid-August to test the viability of this model.
