Milwaukee Community Compost Network, MCCN, is a project of the Victory Garden Initiative. Our mission is to educate businesses and residents to recycle their vegetable and fruit scraps at home or at one of our many community compost sites. The soil generated will aid in the food production of local farms, community gardens, and home victory gardens.
MCCN will turn 1 year old in October! The MCCN has grown significantly since a handful of Victory Garden Initiative volunteers started picking up compostables from local Milwaukee businesses. In 1 weeks time we average about 600lbs of food residuals from 13 local restaurants and grocers. We invite everyone to utilize our public drop off sites at Concordia gardens in Harambee and behind Sweetwater Organics in Bay View.
