Intro to Community Composting in St. Pete w/ Special Guest MakeSoil

Interested in composting your kitchen scraps but don’t know where to start? Or are you a gardener or community garden that would like to start getting more organic matter to make more compost to grow more food? Maybe you lived in a community that offered municipal composting services and you don’t like the idea of sending your food scraps to the landfill. Come learn how community composting can provide solutions to these concerns and more.

Also, we will have special guest Josh Whiton from MakeSoil to talk about their community composting platform. MakeSoil is a decentralized solution to our food waste crisis, raising Soil Makers to turn the organic matter going to landfills into planet-saving soil instead. Their website connects Soil Makers with Soil Supporters. Find a community compost bin (or become on) on their map at www.makesoil.org

PCCA Community Composting Class located near downtown St. Petersburg, FL.

At a private home, please call 727-210-5367 for address. Please RSVP to this event to receive updates.

This class is taught by Pinellas Community Composting Alliance Co-Founder and Permaculture Designer Jen Andreani of the Bluehouse Regenerative Living Project.

Come learn how I collect friend’s and neighbor’s kitchen scraps and compost them with the help of the community. Community compositing diverts precious organic matter from the landfill, reduces greenhouse gas production, builds our neighborhood’s soils to grow more food locally, and creates resilient community connections.

This is a hands on workshop. You will learn what Community Composting is, how to start composting at an existing neighborhood compost hub or even start one of your own. Includes a tour of the community compost system with hands on composting experience. Please wear gardening clothes, closed toed shoes, and bring water.

Cost of Class is 2 Time Credits for members of the St. Pete Time Bank or a Suggested Donation $10 for non members to help support PCCA’s material costs and mission.

Pinellas Community Composting Alliance

PCCA was founded to help local people get local support, tips, and attend classes for composting. We study scientifically proven composting methods to help people create healthy soil and reduce harmful greenhouse emissions of methane. One of the most resourceful aspects of PCCA is community composting - to help create connections between people in the community and drop of hubs where experts can properly compost food waste for neighbors who may be unable to do so. Our goal is to set up a community compost hub every few blocks so that no food or yard waste ends up leaving our communities. It's a valuable resource that we too often throw away with the trash.
