An ACES project team led the development of this plan and campaign - the initial phase is the roll out of an education and awareness campaign directed at residential composting, as well as non-profits and businesses located in the downtown business district, with an aim to improve the general understanding about the overall environmental and financial benefits of composting.

We are seeking volunteers to help make the campaign come alive via support in such areas as:

  • Marketing/Communications - the writing of a variety of documents associated with the overall educational messaging and posting messages via social media and websites
  • Publicity –Developing press releases and backgrounders for use with the media and interacting with media contacts
  • Volunteer Outreach –Helping to connect with and engage other volunteers to work with team member to share the benefits of composting.
  • Connections with churches and non-profits - Members of churches and/or non-profit organizations located in downtown who can help with outreach to these organizations.
