Presented by Vermont Community Garden Network in partnership with James McSweeney

This fall VCGN is partnering with compost expert James McSweeney of Compost Technical Services and local groups for four Community Composting Forums.  The forums bring together a wide range of perspectives to explore the role community and school gardens can play in community composting and food scrap management.


The Community Composting Forums are open to anyone interested in moving forward community composting projects, getting connected to community and school gardens, or just being a part of the conversation. The discussions are sponsored by Northwest Vermont Solid Waste Management District, Rutland County Solid Waste District, and Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste Management District and moderated by VCGN partner and gardening expert Charlie Nardozzi.


This fall Community Composting Forums will be held at 4 locations around the state.
