Food Scraps For Fungi

Diversion of waste is a critical part of a sustainable society and the scaling back of the recycling program here in Richmond (and nationally) inspired us at RRFS to create a unique solution. Our initial goal is to sign-up 100 Richmond City residents in 2020, record the weight of food waste we can divert throughout the year, and use innovative methods to create the most powerful, biologically active compost we can -- with the ultimate goal of getting it to the small farms around Virginia that need it the most.
