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.
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.
