Kourtnii's Guide

Meet Kourtnii Brown, a self-described worm wrangler and soil slinger. She’s the founder and director of Common Compost in Oakland, California, an organization supporting organic’s recovery and improving local food systems.

Hear how she’s turned this deep-rooted community work into California-wide policy advocacy. As the steering committee chair of the California Alliance for Community Composting, she's helping to coordinate a $1.35 million grant from CalRecycle to expand small-scale composting infrastructure and training as a climate solution.
