Princeton Environmental Commission Food Waste Event

Creative Ways to Manage Your Food Waste

May 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

We are grateful to the Princeton Environmental Commission for organizing this family-friendly event at The Mountain Lakes House.


Banana peels, pizza crust, and strawberry tops, oh my! Our food waste actually accounts for one-fourth of the landfill.  But don’t despair; come learn several different ways that you can turn your food scraps into a rich, organic fertilizer for your lawn.

With a backyard compost bin, the right kind of worms, or even a few hens, you can watch your food scraps gain a new purpose and skip the landfill.

PEC’s three speakers will share tips and techniques for each of the following topics:

  • Backyard Composting: Carrie Dyckman, Compost Enthusiast and Consultant
  • Vermicomposting: Pramod Raju, Environmental Entrepreneur & Activist
  • Backyard Hens: Joseph Heckman, Ph.D. Professor of Soil Science, Rutgers University
