Annenberg Public Policy Center Worm Composting
The Annenberg Public Policy Center (APPC) installed a worm composting system in Fall 2010 for the dual purpose of reducing the amount of food waste in the building and educating staff about the composting process. Based on an informal survey, APPC staff determined that they produced enough kitchen waste to warrant a small composting project that would complement waste reduction efforts already in place at the Center. Compost from the APPC is used as fertilizer for both indoor and outdoor plants at the Center, as well as at the Penn Women's Center's garden.
