Brooklyn Grange

Brooklyn, NY

O2Compost was contacted by Western Queens Compost Initiative in 2012. Their mission: to create a fiscally sustainable model for urban agriculture and to produce healthy, delicious vegetables for their local community. O2Compost donated the aeration and solar equipment for this project and our compost system is now an imporant part of the rooftop farm known as Brooklyn Grange Farm. The system composts vegetative by-products, chicken manure, food waste generated by food processing companies, and kitchen scraps from restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood. The compost is used on the rooftop farm to amend their soils. It feels great to have participated in this project and to support "rooftop sustainability".
