Composting as an Act of Liberation, March 30, 2019. GreenThumb GrowTogether Conference, New York City.
2019: Looking back on a decade of composting and compost education. Corinne Coe started teaching composting in San Francisco in the fall of 2008. Since then she’s taught across the U.S. and abroad, written for and been featured in magazine articles, presented at national and regional conferences, and processes hundreds of tons of organic material into sweet, sweet compost. Corinne recently returned from Guyana where she visited the capital city’s landfill and met with their solid waste director. She also visited local farms and produce markets. 2019 is ripe with opportunity and Terra Nova Compost will leverage Corinne’s decade of experience to continue to transform soil, environment, and communities here and abroad.
As of February 2018, Terra Nova Compost is co-located in New York, New York and Atlanta, Georgia. We look forward to building new partnerships, making new friends, and breaking new ground! Look for us at a GreenMarket, at an NYC Compost Project site, or enjoying one of the multitude of NYC public parks.
2017 was HUGE.
Terra Nova Compost Co-founder and Director, Corinne Coe, was a speaker at the National Cultivating Community Compost Forum at the U.S. Composting Council’s annual conference in Los Angeles. She was also a special guest at the USCC’s 25th Anniversary Conference Closing Ceremony. Corinne also led a composting workshop at Georgia Organics’ annual conference to a packed house in February.
Terra Nova Compost led a composting workshop at Food Well Alliance’s Soil Festival in Atlanta, Georgia. Other workshops included: Raleigh Charter School (Raleigh, NC), Raleigh’s Second Saturday food and agriculture event series, and North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s Lunchtime Discovery Series.
Most exciting of all… Corinne traveled to Africa three times to lead multi-day workshops to small landholding farmers in Guinea, Egypt, and Uganda.
Happy New Year! 2016 was BIG. Thanks to a generous 2016 Local Food Grant from Food Well Alliance we were finally able to realize our dream of growing compost leaders and advancing composting programs and soil building efforts across Metro Atlanta! We are so excited to have had the opportunity to collaborate with the Institute for Local Self-Reliance in hosting Atlanta’s first Community Compost Advocate Training Program at Lake Claire Community Land Trust in June of 2016!
