Community Composting: A Panel Discussion on Zoom
February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
A panel discussion with Panel: Scott Hesse, Davis Saltonstall, and David Wessels
Food waste is a major contributor to climate change in the U.S. Maine, to its credit, has led a national campaign to recycle food waste, and the state Climate Action Plan supports community composting. Belfast has considered piloting a community site, but has not succeeded long-term. Residents have proposed it to the BGC, but the club doesn’t have sufficient capacity. Food and garden waste is recycled locally by many home gardeners, but the food waste problem cannot be dealt with at scale by individuals. https://www.maine.gov/climateplan/
This interactive program invites members and neighbors to learn about and discuss the options.
This program is part of the 2023 Belfast Garden Club Evening Lecture Series presented in collaboration with All of Belfast Climate Dialogues, a project of the Belfast Free Library.
