“Food for the Earth” is a community-based initiative for composting on site.
In December 2020 “Food for the Earth – Composting Communities for Climate” project was awarded in the contest of Climate Community Lab. It was born from a cross-border collaboration between Urban Cultor startup in Bucharest, Romania, and Our Neighborhood Association for Sustainable Practices in Bulgaria.
The short term pilot project idea is to make a demo project of community composting “in situ” in Bucharest for a cross border multiplication and scale the already started initiative in Sofia. Design, built, install and operate two shared compost locations in urban areas: one in Bulgaria, Sofia by “Our Neighborhood” Association for Sustainable Practices and the second in Bucharest by Urban Cultor company is our mission. Our main goal is to create, adapt, transfer knowledge and raise awareness among citizens and municipalities about soil’s health in urban and periurban areas.
