LA Compost

LA Compost restores lost connections to the soil and one another. Cooperatively with a diverse network of partners within LA County, we co-create spaces for local compost access, restorative practices, and community empowerment. We support a healthy transition where food is never wasted, but returned to the soil for the next cycle of life.

    Building Community Climate Resilience through Compost

    LA Compost is working to restore lost connections to the soil and one another. We recognize that the root cause of environmental destruction is a disassociation with the natural world, and through co-creating spaces for local compost access and engagement, we seek to restore individual and community connections to the soil that feeds us all. Cooperatively with a diverse human network of Angelenos across LA County, we aspire to make LA robust in its access to community level composting, climate change and ecosystem resilience.

    Compost Hubs throughout Los Angeles

    L.A. Compost and Kiss the Ground are partnering to create a local solution to composting in Los Angeles. We are currently composting over 2,000lbs of food weekly across 5 hubs countywide. Over the next 5 years we plan to expand our work by building 20 more hubs and establishing composting programs that will keep unnecessary food scraps out of landfills, providing communities with the tools and education needed to compost locally.
