Cool idea, I wonder if there is anything like this in Colorado Springs.


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.

“If you don’t dramatically improve the soil, you cannot grow food in cities,” Brosowsky says.

His solution? Compost Cab, a Washington, D.C.-based service that picks up urban food waste and delivers it to local farms for composting. From group houses to government offices to high-end restaurants, all are welcome to give up their brown gold.
