Grow food at home – Washington Hispanic


The Institute for Local Self-Sufficiency has partnered with the District of Columbia Department of Public Works (DCDPW) to produce a two-hour event for the first time in Spanish to provide Latinos in DC with a pathway to a host of benefits for connect with the earth.

Among them is understanding how to create better soil to grow food at home and reduce food waste.

To that end, on August 6, from 9 to 11 a.m., DCDPW will offer a free home composting workshop, taught in Spanish and with a rebate of up to $75 that will be awarded to DC residents who complete it.

That way, they will offset the cost of buying a home composting bin.

The workshop will be given by Daniela Ochoa González, who will be the main trainer. He has more than 14 years of experience in food systems, food waste reduction, and composting as key solutions for land stewardship, environmental justice, and climate action.
