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 we offer free composting workshops through the Experimental College, make presentations to clubs and classrooms, as well as make home compost consulatations and construct compost bins to give away.

The Action portion of the program consists of compost pickups. Each and everyday we collect over 1,000 pounds of food matter from the Dining Commons (Tercero, Segundo, Oxford Circle, and Castilian), 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 in windrows.

In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
