Let's Go Compost

Hands in the Dirt, Community in Our Hearts

Let's Go Compost is dedicated to driving composting initiatives and raising consciousness about the advantages of composting within our local communities. By collaborating with school and community gardens, garden clubs, sustainability clubs, and the general public through free workshops, live demonstrations, composting tutorials, and Q&A sessions, we strive to make composting accessible to all households, regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds.


By distributing composting bins and providing educational resources on composting techniques, Let's Go Compost enables these school gardens, community gardens, NGOs, individuals, and families to divert organic waste from landfills, thus contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and the creation of nutrient-rich soil amendments. Let’s Go Compost additionally offers online educational materials about composting via The Compost Library, a weekly blog hosted on, and throughout social media. Let’s Go Compost also offers a mobile seed library at public events and school visits to encourage home, school, and community gardeners to grow their own plants, a meaningful segue into encouraging composting and waste mitigation in these places of impact!


Market research demonstrates our free composting workshops and public education campaigns address growing concerns around sustainable waste management. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), organic waste constitutes a significant portion of the waste stream, with approximately 30% of municipal solid waste comprising organic materials like food scraps and yard trimmings. As landfills become increasingly strained, finding effective solutions for diverting organic waste is crucial. The program’s approach of repurposing bulk ingredient buckets into worm compost bins aligns with the EPA's recommendations for reducing organic waste through composting. Further, a survey conducted by Green Matters found that 79% of respondents believe composting is important for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting healthy soils. By offering free workshops and accessible, cost-effective composting solutions, the program directly addresses these concerns and resonates with a growing environmentally-conscious demographic.


The inception of the program also corresponds with a rising global interest in sustainable practices. A report by Grand View Research states the global composting market is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% from 2021 to 2028. This growth can be attributed to increasing awareness of the environmental consequences of improper waste disposal and a shift towards circular economy principles. The program's emphasis on utilizing repurposed buckets aligns with the circular economy concept, which seeks to minimize waste and maximize resource efficiency. Additionally, the accessibility of the program addresses a critical gap in composting infrastructure. The Institute for Local Self-Reliance highlights that convenient access to composting facilities significantly influences participation rates. By providing composting solutions directly to the community, the program taps into a market with substantial growth potential and serves as a catalyst for transforming waste management practices on an individualized, household level.
