Community Compost Site at Greco Gardens opens

  • Greco Middle School 6925 East Fowler Avenue Tampa, FL, 33617 United States (map)

The public is invited to see the new Community Composting site located at the community garden on school property adjacent to a public track. This opening event is an opportunity to learn about the vision for this composting site that includes diverting both residential and school cafeteria food waste. Representatives of Tampa Bay Farm 2 School and the Hillsborough Community Composting Alliance will be available to share resources and answer questions about composting.

A partnership between the City of Temple Terrace, Greco Middle School and Tampa Bay Farm 2 School, this new public community composting site was designed by Greco STEM students and students of the USF School of Architecture and Community Design. As a Greco Middle School community partner and host of the Community Compost site, Tampa Bay Farm 2 School is providing ongoing maintenance, turning the compost, communicating with local Soil Supporters, and maintaining the appropriate balance of materials for a productive outcome. Thank you to these Community Compost sponsors: the Greco STEM program, City of Temple Terrace, USF School of Architecture and Community Design, the GFWC Temple Terrace Jr. Women’s Club,, Temple Terrace Preservation Society, Hillsborough Community Composting Alliance and Ward-Mitchell: Civil Trial Attorneys.
