Sustainable Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY
Sustainable Flatbush, the recipient of a KAB/Lowe’s Community Improvement Grant, would like to thank Lowe’s for supporting our Community Compost Project with a grant of $5,000. Our Compost Project provides a neighborhood-based resource where Flatbush, Brooklyn residents can recycle kitchen scraps and yard waste and learn about the compost process by participating and observing it in action. We collaborate with local schools, churches, youth groups, businesses and neighbors to reduce the amount of waste generated in our community.
Our goal is to convert composting from a fringe practice to a mainstream activity by demystifying the process and training our neighbors in practical composting skills. Using compost as a vehicle, we promote environmental advocacy, activism, and stewardship on a local scale.
