USCC Launches the Million Tomato Campaign
The Million Tomato Compost Campaign is a nationwide effort to spread the word that compost is a key component to building the healthy soil needed to grow sustainable, local food that helps build healthy communities. The Campaign unites chefs, community gardens, food pantries, and compost manufacturers to introduce Americans to the value of compost. USCC is proud to be working with celebrity Chef Nathan Lyon on this campaign!
