Walsh Becomes Fort Worth’s First Public-Private Food Composting Site
The district of Walsh claims to be the 14th place of residence for the pilot program to compost food waste in residential areas of the city of Fort Worth and the first public-private partnership under the program.
The new website at Walsh Community Garden at 13749 Makers Way is open and operational for program attendees to drop off their leftovers. The first 13 drop-off points in the program are in public places such as libraries and parks.
“By partnering with the city, our residents have the opportunity to have a positive impact on our environment,” said Seth Carpenter, vice president of development for Republic Property Group, Walsh’s developer, in a press release. “Every decision for the community is based on our goal of combining high-tech solutions with the goal of preserving land and space for future generations.”
