The Kompost Kids: We are a group of volunteers, businesses, and consumers working hard to create a decentralized composting operation that helps urban agriculture have access to high quality, clean soil for the purpose of growing sustainable GOOD FOOD, while turning waste in black gold (aka, soil). This is a volunteer run operation and we invite you to participate in the production of soil, not oil. Currently, we are composting a two main locations, Concordia Gardens, Sweet Water Organics, and Bay View Hide House Community Garden.
