This project, built off of the Scottsdale Sustainable Systems Inventory, demonstrates how waste can be an opportunity to use transition design to increase community health and decrease energy use.
Students worked with an existing compost facility on a Native American reservation, Arizona State agricultural researchers, the Waste Management Corporation and Ken McCown to create a plan for minimizing landfill waste. The reused portions of the waste would generate compost to be used to grow local crops. Local crops would be placed into local schools and potentially change eating habits.
