Bompost is a youth led project in Santa Ana, California, where youth collects organic waste and turns it into compost. The compost is processed at a micro farm where it is used by the community to make organic food for low income residents some of which are our families.

In order to have more micro farms throughout the city we started a campaign called Dab4Land to get the vacant lots around the city to be used for community benefit. We continue to work on this campaign to address various land issues in our city. Recently we’ve been able to get land at a local church to start the micro farm.
