Eco Innovation Campus
If you want to start a communal compost pile in your HOA, at your restaurant or hotel, or in your community garden, or even at your office building, our Eco Innovation Campus provides the education materials and hands-on learning for you to get started! The Eco Innovation Campus includes the Eco Learning Lab: Mid-Scale Composting Demonstration & Training Center and the Eco Container. Located in the Infield Farm at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, these facilities provide extensive education opportunities to expand the community’s composting knowledge.
The Eco Container, a re-purposed shipping container at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Infield Farm, has expanded our year-round educational offerings. This satellite location features the 4 Rs (reuse, reduce, recycling, and rot), composting, rain barrels, water conservation, watershed protection, and California-friendly gardens.
