Project Description

We are a network of community composters maintaining compost hubs throughout LA County. Our team of educators and soil enthusiasts build and facilitate cohesive composting communities for individuals and communities in shared spaces. LA Compost is both the compost hub and the people that contribute to composting in LA.

The majority of our spaces where we work are outdoors, where people can understand the connections between soil and water. They understand the importance of compost. They also understand that compost is both an act and a finished product. The very act is very symbolic: taking broken and unwanted materials and bringing those together to create something that is whole and life-giving and complex.
