Leucadia Farmers Market Event Volunteer

Solana Center is working alongside EDCO and the City of Encinitas to support the rollouts for new curbside composting services. The new SB1303 ordinance requires all Southern California residents to be diverting their organic waste from the landfill, and EDCO waste hauling services is now servicing our local community with their anaerobic digester to provide curbside organic waste pickup to all residents. 

The City of Encinitas has funded Solana Center to be present at our local Leucadia Farmers Market bi-monthly to help spread the word and educate residents about these new curbside composting services. Many local residents may not yet understand the importance of organic waste diversion, or could use support with the transition to curbside composting, and Solana Center is here to help! 

At the market, we speak with members of our local community to share resources, answer questions, and spread the word on this important new transition to curbside composting. We also have exciting giveaway prizes for Encinitas Residents who take our recycling survey.  Come spend the day outside with us at our community outreach booth and talk about curbside composting and organic waste diversion!

This volunteer shift will consist of a few hours of being on your feet in the sun, and lots of talking and interaction with the community.
