Rethinking Food Waste:
Engaging Our Community in the Many Ways & Whys to Compost

Sag Harbor resident Kate Plumb will make the case for community composting outlining a 10 family pilot that can be replicated in other towns.  Mary Morgan, of Orient on the North Fork, will describe the many programs being piloted to divert food from the landfill and repurpose into compost.  She will describe a possible East End wide-initiative where households pilot the use of a countertop composter to make a soil enrichment.
