Earlier this year a close ILSR partner, Jeffrey Neal, sat down with DCTV’s Studio 901 to discuss an important issue in the Washington D.C. metro area: urban composting. Jeffrey Neal, ILSR’s Urban & On-Site Compost Consultant for the Composting for Community initiative, joined Studio 901’s host Trenice Bishop to talk about his work with the Howard University Community Garden and his vermiculture composting in his condo building.

Jeffrey is a graduate of ILSR’s Neighborhood Soil Rebuilders program, which trains participants to establish and manage composting projects that both engage and serve their communities. His work in vermicomposting has also been featured in The Washington Post.

Jeffrey mentions the Howard University Community Garden, which we have featured at length in this article from previous ILSR intern Valerie Onifade as well as our overview of community composting projects in the Washington D.C.-Baltimore area.

Video of Jeffrey’s segment is available here:
