Benjamin Martinez's curator insight, February 8, 1:11 AM

I really enjoyed reading this article because it gave me a different inside perspective on the aspects of growing natural local food. Right now I am a student at California State University Channel Islands and I have an interest in becoming some sort of farmer one day. So with all honesty, I found this article very informational due to the fact that I did not know the University of Hawai’i had classes on the construction and production of agriculture.  Actually reading about the insights of students who have experienced this type of life has helped me realize I have always had a soft side for growing plants of the natural environment. One thing that caught my attention revolved around the idea of starting a business through the concepts of farming. So what I want to say is that I am interested in the idea of owning my own business and farm. It helps me realize how I want to help the world and my community by growing food we all can eat.

Community Composting Grows from a Seed into a Movement

Community Composting Grows from a Seed into a Movement | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
Three years ago, Dustin Fedako attended the US Composting Council’s annual conference. As founder of Compost Pedallers, a bike-powered compost recycling program in Austin, Texas, Fedako didn’t know what to expect from the conference, which is geared toward the industrial composting model. He just wanted to “sponge up as much as he could.” He learned a lot and he also spent a lot of time explaining what community composting is.
