Compost for Good — in partnership with Clarkson University, AdkAction and the Adirondack North Country Association — Thursday announced the launch of its new series of education and outreach campaigns.

The goal of the campaigns is to enhance community engagement and knowledge about food waste reduction and community scale composting practices. Through the active involvement of four dedicated Compost Liaisons, this initiative aims to empower local residents and businesses to adopt more closed loop waste management practices in and around four North Country communities: Canton, Potsdam, Malone and Lake Placid.

As part of the campaign, Compost Liaisons Cory Vinyard (Potsdam), Lauren Prentice (Canton), Tammy Morgan (Lake Placid) and Laura Cook (Malone) will be conducting a variety of activities including presentations, one-on-one consultations, tabling events, and media interviews. These efforts are tailored to increase awareness and provide practical solutions in food waste management and compost generation within the community. The project is supported by a Rural Business Development Grant from the United States Department of Agriculture.
