Daniela Ochoa started this petition to Muriel Bowser and

Make composting attractive to W8 residents, while increasing the accessibility of fresh produce for them!

DC is investing in providing a Composting Drop-Off location in W8, but participation is extremely low. 

DC is investing in making W8 Farmer´s Market thrive, but fresh produce offer and consumption also remains low and is mostly performed with the EBT vouchers. 

Green Barter has proved to be one of the most successful educational and participatory mechanisms to nudge green healthy habits!

All we want it for the city to provide some $10,000 dollars to give away extra EBT vouchers to residents that come take 5-minute food systems talk at the EBT vouchers tent and bring their home food scraps to be composted at the drop-off tent that is ALREADY there!  Participants will be rewarded for composting and go home with extra produce. 

We are asking for a pilot program in W8, preferentially within the last 8 weeks of THIS market season. This pilot will provide the city valuable data related to our waste disposal needs and most important key steps forward towards our Sustainable DC 2.0 goals! 

Please help us make it a reality
