Abstract

Floragenesis addressed food issues on campus, such as freshness and localness, with the proposal of a campus community garden that utilizes food waste otherwise neglected. Over time, the composting aspect of the program would phase out the practice of exporting food waste from the main dining halls. Composting feasibility studies specific to the WPI have been conducted in the past. For this reason, Floragenesis has primarily focused on construction, productivity, and community garden management.
