Thank you! Worms poop in our kitchens now!

the project

One of our most popular workshops! Our compost project teaches the benefits of composting, provides bins and worms, and instructions on and how to start and keep a bin. Perfect for CSA scraps!

the steps

Educate ARROW community and Astoria CSA members about the benefits of composting and how to start and keep their own compost bins. Provide bins and worms for participants.

why we're doing it

We make local fruits and veggies more accessible to our community by running the CSA, which partners with Golden Earthworm Farm on Long Island. We also do educational programming on things like eco-friendly cleaning, environmental issues, and nutrition for children and adults who are part of the CSA and members of the community as well. We also provide subsidies for a certain amount of shares to make this produce available to members who could otherwise not afford to join and help increase awareness of agricultural issues among this disadvantaged group.


Composting bins for 25 participants ($15 each= $375); starter worms ($10 each= $250). Due to smaller number of participants, only materials for 10 participants will be purchased in 2009.
