Compost Law & Policy focused Legal Cafe

Activists, Worker Co-op Members, Urban Farmers! Join us for a Compost Law and Policy Teach-in!

We warmly invite you to our Compost Law & Policy Teach-in, and Legal Cafe, a two-part event! You can come to both or either!

RSVP Below!

1. From 5:00PM - 6:00PM: Teach-In

Now is the time to learn about and shape the future of compost law in California! Whether you grow food, eat food, or make compost, we hope you'll join us for a teach-in and discussion on this fascinating subject, which has deep implications for the future of health, nutrition, food systems, climate, jobs, and more.

A community compost movement is emerging locally, with a diverse array of organizations, cooperatives, and enterprises composting in creative ways using local food and yard scraps. But guess what! These groups face a growing number of legal barriers, and it's important that we organize, interact with regulators, and reshape the legal landscape for composting in California.

This conversation is hosted by local compost entrepreneur, Kourtnii Brown of Common Compost, and compost law advocate, Janelle Orsi, of Sustainable Economies Law Center.

2. From 6:00PM - 7:30PM: One-on-One Legal Consultations 

The Resilient Communities Legal Cafe is a first-come, first-serve, donation-based legal advice clinic, providing a collaborative space for community building and connecting offered by the Sustainable Economies Law Center. We provide direct legal support to individuals and groups who are working to create new solutions for resilient local economies. 

This Legal Cafe is hosted by Alchemy Collective Cafe, a worker-owned cooperative business that serves delicious coffee and pastries! And, they host our Legal Cafes at NO CHARGE to the Law Center! Thanks, Alchemy!!!

Everyone is welcome to attend our teach-in and legal cafe. Please RSVP below.
