Project Compost is a student-run, student-funded unit of the Associated Students of the University of California, Davis (ASUCD). Four student staff members, many interns, and even more wonderful volunteers cooperatively manage Project Compost.

There are 2 parts to Project Compost: Education and Action.  The Education portion means offering free composting workshops through the Experimental College, making presentations to clubs and classrooms, as well as making home compost consultations and constructing compost bins to give away.  The Action portion of the program consists of compost pickups.  Each and every day, Project Compost collects over 1,000 pounds of food matter from the Dining Commons, ASUCD Coffee House, coffee kiosks on campus, the Pomology Department, the Greenhouse, and several labs on campus.  This organic matter is composted by Project Compost on the Student Farm.
