We got funding!

So, a lot has happened since late February!

For starters our team traveled to Sierra Vista in the beginning of March to take a tour of their composting facility. They windrow compost landscape clippings from around the city. All the employees were very friendly and fed us a FREE lunch!

If you want to learn more about Sierra Vista's composting program go to the following site:

Also, on March 8th our team was awarded a grant from the UA GREEN FUND for around $58,000. This grant will be used to continue our project next year! So, far this semester has been pretty successful!

Well, we will update you soon, thanks for reading.
