Restaurant 2 Garden Expansion: 2024-2025
Restaurant 2 Garden transforms local restaurant food waste into compost within Seattle’s Chinatown International District (CID) and donates it to the Danny Woo Community Garden. By moving to a new site and purchasing new equipment, this project would support scaling up operations from serving two businesses to at least 15 food businesses by 2025. This project will serve those who need compost and a direct, affordable, reliable food scraps collection system in the CID.
