ABSTRACT
The article reports on the composting program initiated by the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in Durham. Since the program started, more than half a million pounds of food residuals have been composted. Food wastes are collected from the university's dining facilities and from several local restaurants. Collected food scraps are composted at the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture's Kingman Farm. Finished compost is then used in a campus garden, with produce coming back to the dining halls. INSET: LOCAL HARVEST INITIATIVE, CAMPUS SUSTAINABILITY.
