Interview with Joseph Brock, Owner, New Orleans, Louisiana

How did you recognize a need for a food scraps collection service?

I started out with community gardens first. In New Orleans, community gardens — everyone was building them. But they weren’t building a sustainable way to maintain gardens and feed the plants. Lots of community gardens went out of business in one to two years. We wanted to create a sustainable model that would work. What came out of that was the need for finding a resource for low cost plant food. And so, I developed “The Composting Network” as a business model to work with restaurants because they had the bulk of the organic waste. The Composting Network, LLC, is one of the only composting facilities in Louisiana — we definitely saw a need for it here.
