Groups of teens on a field trip about food waste

The project activities are rounded out by bringing K-12 students on a number of field trips to observe a resource recovery facility in action and learn about the value of resource recovery and the benefits of food waste for energy generation. Students can visit the Cornell Cooperative Extension Farm’s small-scale farm digester, where their own food waste is disposed, as well as two large dairy digesters located in Lisbon, NY and Canton, NY. Next fall we will bring students to visit the food waste digester located on Clarkson’s campus.
