SAS Visits the Dirt Factory

On January 29, the SAS Sustainability team came together at 4308 Market St for a tour of the Dirt Factory, University City’s newest community composting facility. While the Dirt Factory is still in its first year of production, its two reclaimed Earth Tubs, purchased from Penn, are already hard at work composting bagged fallen leaves and organic waste material. The Dirt Factory receives much of their organic waste via delivery by the Pedal Co-Op, and also holds weekly free drop-off hours for community members. The generated compost goes to urban farming and gardening efforts. The SAS Sustainability team looks forward to partnering with the Dirt Factory later this year for educational outreach events.
