Restaurant 2 Garden Project
Restaurant 2 Garden composts local restaurant food waste in historic Nihonmachi within Seattle’s Chinatown International District (CID). The pilot program will take food waste from local restaurants, and compost it in Danny Woo Community Garden to provide the gardeners with fertilizer, supporting neighbors in the CID with safe compost and a direct, affordable, reliable food waste collection system.
