According to the EPA, more than 33 million tons of food waste were generated in 2010, making it the single largest component of municipal solid waste reaching landfills and incinerators. Composting unusable produce helps divert these food materials from landfills, but in urban areas and harsh climates, composting can be challenging due to lack of yard space and inclement weather.
If this Grassroots campaign raises $630, then the Center for Resilient Cities can purchase two weather-resistant, double composting bins and two pitchforks for its 2-acre urban farm, Alices Garden. In the 108-cubic-foot double bins, leftover food and unusable produce mixes with leaves, twigs, and other plant materials, breaking down into nutrient-rich soil that serves as an organic fertilizer to boost garden health. Each additional $290 raised will purchase another double composting bin.
To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign.
The Center for Resilient Cities strives to create healthy, robust communities through projects and programs that promote healthy, sustainable lifestyles while fostering new opportunities and social networks. Upon completion this fall, its Resilience Research Center will act as an LEED-rated neighborhood center on Madison's south side, housing world-class researchers and a sustainability-focused charter middle school.
The Center for Resilient Cities staff and volunteers advocate for sustainable, just food systems, and revitalize local parks and open spaces. Its urban-resilience project and 2-acre farm, Alices Garden, hosts plots for roughly 100 families and 10 community organizations. Amid its soil and greenery, dozens of free programs take place, including yoga and aerobics classes, weekly reading circles, harvest-specific cooking classes, and a youth environment-and-farming-education group led by the Urban Farm Manager.
