Lee speaks to Popular Science about composting

Susanne Lee, faculty fellow at the Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions, spoke to Popular Science about compost management. Lee says that creating compost as a community can displace the need to purchase manure and fertilizer — or even be sold at a profit. “If you have an end product that has a market value, of course that is going to be saving you money versus trying to take up space in the landfill,” said Lee. The Institute for Local Self-Reliance shared the Popular Science report.
