Food Cycle Program - Volunteer Work Day

Get involved in our expanding food waste diversion program!

Solana Center Garden

Solana Center's Food Cycle Program closes the loop between organic waste and healthy soil in our community. Program participants bring their Bokashi'd food scraps to the Center where it is turned into a nutritious soil amendment and returned back to individuals. This growing program needs a lot of support! Volunteers help us build piles, integrate incoming material, processes finished compost, and prepares collection buckets to be redistributed to program members.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the Zero Waste efforts of your community and develop your composting skills at the same time as you work alongside our experts. No prior experience required but you must be willing to get messy in the name of Zero Waste! Pile builds happen monthly on Saturdays from 9:30 to 12 AM. Check out the dates below for upcoming opportunities. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Food Cycle Program or learning more about the Bokashi method, find out more here!

In this event, you will assist with:

  • Incorporating new waste
  • Washing buckets
  • More details TBD closer to the date
