abstract
This study will compare training techniques used in the implementation of composting kitchen prep waste in two University of Wyoming kitchens and one locally owned restaurant in Laramie, Wyoming. In June of 2008, Agricultural Community Resources for Everyday Sustainability (ACRES) the University of Wyoming Student Farm organized a small scale composting program with the University campus and various local downtown restaurants. In its first year of operation ACRES removed a prime supplier of compost, the University Washakie Dining Center due to massive amounts of trash found within the compost material. I hypothesize the Washakie Center does not effectively train its kitchen staff on the importance of and correct procedure of composting. I will compare training methods at Washakie to two other composting sites, University of Wyoming Catering and one off-campus restaurant. Through the use of surveys, participant observation, and examining training documents, compost training techniques used at these locations will be identified. If this study shows that improved training techniques are useful, it could lead to improvement and reinstatement of composting at the Washakie Center location. With the potential re-implementation of the Washakie Center composting program ACRES could double the volume of the total compost received.
