Building off of Orlando Leon's Food Park idea, this is a proposal to partner with the city to create a closed loop composting system. Like your regular garbage pick up, people can compost their vegetables, pizza boxes, fruits, etc. (no meat), the cit

Hi Ewan, I would love to chat with you about this idea and learn more about what the team came up with. I'll send you an email. I'm in my last two weeks of school before graduation which is the reason why I've been so quiet here.

Awesome! I too like the idea of allowing schools to set a goal of x number of miles to source their food and having it be region dependent since some schools are located in remote regions.

The business model idea is very interesting too. I think there would be a lot of opportunity there to involve the greater community including farmers. I like the idea of giving schools the option of having lunch box catering or full cafeteria style catering (dependent on the school's budget and needs).

Having a pilot phase would be a great way to test the feasibility of the idea. I'm curious to know how we might further expand the idea to include some of the surrounding island nations.

Paul, I would be very interested in learning more about how the system works. What does it looks like? Who is involved and how do people get involved? What are some of the barriers and how have they been overcome? If you have a link that has some the info, that would be helpful.
