Compost Cab Aids Urban Agriculture
Think green. Compost Cab, a company helping to decrease food waste and increase urban agriculture, is based in Washington D.C.
Jeremy Brosowsky was in a Milwaukee greenhouse in March 2010 when he had an epiphany: “What if we could take our garbage and grow food in it?”
Brosowsky, 38, was in Wisconsin to learn about urban agriculture at Growing Power, the pioneering urban farm of McArthur Genius fellow Will Allen. At the time, Jeremy was thinking about starting a rooftop agriculture business, but he was intrigued by Allen’s emphasis on the importance — and elusiveness — of fertile soil.
