I am starting a nonprofit called WeCompost that is dedicated to assisting others in profiting by recycling their organic waste on site. One of our goals is to set up a corporate-community co-op for those business that can't compost on site but are willing to give their food scraps to individuals that can. I have reserved a station at Ecovillage at the Akron Home and Flower Show taking place February 22-24. Stop by and say hi or buy some compost tea or a very mini-worm bin.
