Composting everywhere is an expansion project of Composting School! Let's make the composting movement and the organic gardens reach the whole country!

Escola a Compostar is having a GIANT success and we want to take the in-person sessions all over the country!

Escola a Compostar is an initiative of Zero Waste Lab, Mudatuga and Hortas Lx, which is promoting free sessions on composting for anyone interested in Portugal, with virtual and face-to-face moments. This initiative is financed by the Environmental Fund. You can find out more about the initiative through the website https://www.escolaacompostar.pt/

It is worth remembering that up to half of the waste produced in homes has the power to become fertile compost for soil regeneration. And we can all contribute!

At the moment, and on a pilot basis, the face-to-face sessions are restricted to Lisbon.

We found, however, a very strong demonstration of interest by people spread across the country, which motivates us to offer the in-person session in various locations throughout the country. More than a thousand people enrolled at the School, but many of them are not able to attend the in-person sessions, as we only have the budget to hold them in Lisbon.

This campaign appears as a way to expand the reach of Escola a Compostar, taking it to other locations and spreading the word and action of composting throughout the country!

 

 

Our motto is to totally democratize the theme - we want composting to reach many urban centers, contributing with face-to-face sessions in Coimbra, Porto, Faro, Braga, Castelo Branco, ... or wherever there is greater demand. We will conduct an online poll later to find out where there is the most demand. In addition, we plan to open more classes online to keep the movement well motivated! For this to happen, we need your help!

With the financial contribution of each one, according to their possibility, and with a strong impulse in word of mouth, we will be able to take our knowledge and transforming energy to more places.

If we exceed the proposed amount, this amount will be used to reach more places in the country! Just imagine what a difference a proactive composting society can make!

About the author

 

Zero Waste Lab is a non-profit association, founded in 2017, with the mission to promote the Zero Waste concept and actively contribute to the transition to a future without waste. It takes zero waste as a philosophy, inspired by nature's ability to transform what does not serve one as food for the other, which means going beyond minimizing the negative impact and mitigating the production of waste. It seeks a regenerative participation with a positive legacy, with a strong commitment to quality relationships, in order to mobilize a chain of impact movement. Zero Waste Lab works preferably in a network, in the long term and with communities, empowering the various movements and entrepreneurs who share its vision and goals.

Mudatuga enters this project with the mission of transforming common people into composting ninjas! We are a startup created in Coimbra and we have already helped hundreds of people to compost, even in our tiny studio, in the center of the city! We offer training, consultancy, workshops and products to carry out composting at home. Find out more at https://www.mudatuga.com/

Hortas Lx has been promoting urban gardens in Lisbon for over a year, and gathers more than 14 thousand followers on social networks, and is today a reference in the dissemination of organic agriculture. With the driving force of André Maciel, they are showing that it is possible to have a vegetable garden anywhere, and that the future is the green verandas coloring our cities!

    Recompensas da campanha e novidades!

    Alô malta, bom dia!

    Em primeiro lugar, novamente obrigada por fazer parte desta linda comunidade de pessoas que apoiaram a nossa Escola a Compostar. É muito bom ter vocês connosco nesta jornada!

    Trouxe aqui alguns updates sobre a nossa campanha e sobre o cronograma que estamos a seguir. Como sabem, hoje faz exatamente 3 semanas que a nossa campanha acabou, e durante esses dias nós fomos atrás das cidades em que deveríamos fazer as novas sessões, organizámos os espaços, coordenámos as agendas de toda a equipa, criámos um novo plano de comunicação e organizámos uma tabelona com todos vocês que estão a aguardar pacientemente as vossas recompensas.

    Algumas recompensas são simples - uma newsletter! - outras estão a ser criadas do ZERO (as camisolas e kits por exemplo). Portanto, esperamos que compreendam que é preciso algum tempo para que possamos organizar o início dos envios. Estamos a fazer o nosso melhor, somos um time pequenino, e queríamos que vocês recebessem as recompensas mais ou menos todos ao mesmo tempo.

    Portanto, para alinhar expectativas, pedimos que contem com o envio das recompensas a partir de janeiro, visto que em dezembro ainda estaremos a prepará-las. Se conseguirmos enviar antes, melhor :)
    Vamos ainda entrar em contacto com cada um de vocês para confirmar os envios, então podem estar a aguardar o nosso contacto para breve.

    Já agora, também aproveito para dizer que dia 1 de dezembro vão ter o website da Escola a Compostar completamente atualizado e prontíssimo para essa segunda etapa- essa é outra coisa que estamos a fazer por trás dos panos!

    Conforme o cronograma da campanha, as sessões da Escola 2.0 serão realizadas entre janeiro e fevereiro, e em breve vão poder saber todas as datas e cidades.

    Aguentem connosco, vai tudo acontecer a seu tempo!
    Novamente, obrigada pelo apoio. Seguimos junt@s!
