(Rescheduled) Food Cycle Program - December Harvest

Get involved in our expanding food waste diversion program!

Solana Center Garden

Our Food Cycle Program allows community members who can't compost at home still divert their food waste. We have a triple bin aerated static pile system that is on a precise timeline to get food scraps in and cooking and finished compost back out into the community as fast as possible. Our team of volunteers is instrumental in this process!

The first Wednesday (note: this month's harvest has been pushed back a week due to rainy weather) of every month, help us harvest finished compost from one of our bins to make way for the next round of pile building. Volunteers will help our growing food waste diversion program be successful and learn about composting and the amazing Bokashi method!

The Food Cycle Program is a co-op where San Diego County residents and small businesses preserve their organic waste using the Bokashi method and then deliver it to Solana Center to be turned into a nutritious soil amendment and distributed back into the community.
