    Food Waste Diversion:
    Food Dryer
    A large food dryer in the cafeteria removes water from food prep waste.  
    The volume of the waste is reduced 90% by the dryer.  
    The 10% that is leftover gets discharged and is compostable material.
    Composting and Gardening:
    Compost is fed to red wrigglers in the vermiculture beds on campus.  
    Here the worms convert the compostable material form the cafeteria into a
    nutrient-rich fertilizer that will be used to grow produce.  
    That produce can then be used by the nutrition and culinary arts classes.
    Solar Power:
    A solar array installed on campus provides enough energy to power the irrigation and
    cooling systems in the newly renovated greenhouse, in addition to adding a small amount back to the power grid.
