Food ED is partnering with schools, cities, and community gardens to help implement creative ways to repurpose food scraps. We currently have 2 compost hubs we manage at Monrovia Community Garden and Plymouth Elementary School in Monrovia.
Monrovia Community Compost
The Monrovia Community Garden is host to our compost bin that is open 24/7. Located behind the garden in the alley off of Colorado and Magnolia, you are welcome to drop off the appropriate kitchen scraps in this bin at any time. There are browns on site in the trash bins to cover your kitchen scraps. Please use those as it layers the compost and keeps it healthy. See list below to see what is accepted.
Plymouth Compost Co-op
We are now taking sign ups for our Plymouth Compost Co-op. We have 20 spots left for households to sign-up. Once you sign up, we work with you to arrange a time where you can drop food waste and brown materials (see list below of what we accept). Drop-off locations will be located at Plymouth Elementary and another location in Monrovia TBD and range from weekly to once a month for those in the co-op.
To inquire about joining the co-op, email Gio Leos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More details to come.
