Compost Management Success Stories
Some kind words from a few of the people we’ve worked with...

"During the contracts that we had Rich work for us here in the county, he proved that he is full of excellent ideas about organics management, plus he is a fine writer."

“It is my pleasure to personally thank you for taking part in the “Regional Challenges/Regional Solutions: Recycling and Waste Management in San Diego and Tijuana” Workshop. I appreciate your willingness to spend some time with us teaching and learning about the progress occurring as well as the possibilities for more bi-national cooperation on environmental issues. Your knowledge of regional recycling initiatives in the area of organics and your recommendations for future endeavors on both sides of the border was of great value to the roundtable discussion you moderated in the afternoon.”

“When I first spoke to you on the phone and told you I was a teacher who wanted to do what I could to help educate my second graders (with the hope of this expanding into the school and community), I felt “lost” as to where to begin, and who to call, You were so helpful in giving me contacts, who I called, and in delivering to me a very useful program to teach children recycling. Thanks so much for your efforts, words of encouragement, materials and, most of all, caring. My students, and indeed the whole town, are beneficiaries of your involvement.”

Anita Goldschmidt
