The event, September 20 – September 23, celebrated optimism at work through scalable innovation, demonstrating the efficacy of community-based solutions in achieving a just and sustainable world and spotlighting problem-solvers and collaborative thinkers committed to climate action.
Members of our Environmental Program demoed the “HotBox Composting” method as part of the event’s interactive exhibits within the fair’s Farms Fixing Food theme, which featured new approaches to growing, distributing, and making food accessible.
MORE ABOUT THE HOTBOX COMPOSTING METHOD
We work with our partner Open Road on the HotBox, a system that unites Art and Science to decompose organic waste. The HotBox was designed and patented by Open Road, founded by the artist Paula Hewitt, with an engineering team of adults and youth in the Environmental Community.
Patent holders include BroSis alum member Jason Montalvo, current BroSis staff Ralphael Santiago and Nando Rodriguez, and our partner Paula of Open Road.
