    Composting-made-easy is the theme of the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District's 2018 composting seminars and bin sales taking place at local municipalities throughout the spring and summer.


    The informative seminars are designed to teach residents how to properly compost yard waste and food scraps in their backyards while offering low-cost compost bins for sale. Backyard composting helps reduce the amount of organic waste sent to landfills while creating a healthy soil additive that can be used in gardens and landscapes.



    Compost seminars are open to all county residents and registration is required.

    To register for a seminar visit or call (216) 443-3731 ☎.


    What is compost? Compost consists of organic materials derived from plants and some animal material that has been decomposed largely through aerobic decomposition (with oxygen). The process of composting is simple and is practiced by individuals in their homes, farmers on their land and by industries and cities through contracts with composting businesses.


    Compost is rich in nutrients. It is used in gardens, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer to add vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation and wetland construction.


    The following items are available for purchase by cash or check only:

    Wishing Well Composter - $50.00
    Ultimate Dirt Machine Digester - $50.00
    Yard Butler (aeration tool) - $20.00
    Compost Thermometer - $10.00

    A Celebration of Innovation with SOCF Cleveland



    How the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland is using innovation to drive real change.

    With two decades of investment and engagement to change the trajectory of poverty in Cleveland, the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland introduced a fellowship that would bring new, innovative approaches to effect change. Inspired by national models and the selfless dedication of Clevelanders, The Innovation Mission selected five fellows with plans for innovative projects to disrupt the cycle of poverty. This initiative from the Sisters of Charity Foundation was built on the notion that one big idea could change everything.

    To mark the conclusion of this unique fellowship, we invite you for an evening of celebration as we honor the potential that lies in supporting innovation. At the Global Center for Health Innovation, join us to meet the fellows and their innovative journey; engage community leaders in discussion on the innovative models at work; and learn about the future of innovation at the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland.

    Featuring a panel discussion moderated by Darrielle Snipes, ideastream reporter/producer.

    Appetizers, beer and wine provided.

    The Innovation Mission is a ground-breaking initiative of the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland in collaboration with Cleveland Leadership Center.
