For 25 years Sixth Street Community Center has been committed to empowering the Loisaida community and celebrating its extraordinary diversity. We offer programs assisting low and moderate income residents which build a fulfilling sense of community around basic needs for food, health and education. The goal of our proposed Community composting Project is to build and maintain a comprehensive composting system in partnership with El Jardin del Paraiso community park and garden on East 4th - 5th Street, Avenues C - D. The project will utilize the traditional wooden bin system as well as the Bokashi method of "pickling" or fermenting organic waste matter. The Bokashi method, widely used in Japan, breaks down organic matter much faster than traditional composting and has the added benefit of repelling rats and other pests. The organization was awarded the 2011 Manhattan Community Scale Composting Grant by the Manhattan Borough President.
