Digging into the History (and Future) of Garbage

June 13 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


Free
Pardee-Morris House, 325 Lighthouse Road
New Haven, CT United States


Domingo Medina, founder and owner of Peels & Wheels Composting, will discuss his research on the city’s historic practice of door-to-door collection of organic waste, which was sold as pig fodder in the 1800s and into the early 20th century, during “The History (and Future) of Garbage,” at the Pardee-Morris House (PMH). Medina will also explore how a more contemporary approach to separating organic waste to benefit future generations. His discussion at PMH will include a sustainability demo with tips and tricks for successful composting—in backyard gardens and beyond.
