These events will bring together community composters (and those who love them) to network, share best practices, and build support for community-scale composting systems and enterprises. See organizations who attended last year.

Space will be limited. Travel and registration scholarships will be available on an application basis to community composters. Registration fee will offset food and venue costs.

Help us plan!  Click here to let us know if you are interested in:

 — Attending the training, tours, and forum
 — Presenting
 — Applying for a scholarship
 — Staying at the HI New York Hostel (where we have reserved shared rooms for as low as $61/night/person!)

Sponsor the Event & Scholarship Fund

Contributions will primarily cover our scholarship fund, but also our networking reception, printed agendas/materials, and other direct expenses. The scholarship fund will help us bring community composters to the event – especially from underserved urban areas – and cover their travel, hostel accommodations, and registration costs.

Any amount is welcome and will be put to good use!
