Leslie is a trash-talker
After moving away and getting involved in sustainability movements in New York and renewable energy in Connecticut, Leslie Rodgers is back on hometown soil, and making that soil richer, as Education Director & Compost House Coordinator at Atlas Organics.
40% of America’s food isn’t consumed, and its filling local landfills instead of being transformed into the kind of rich soil that backyard gardens and local farms thrive on.
Compost House and Atlas Organics provide innovative and convenient waste management to schools, businesses and homes, converting trash into compost, and reintroducing it into the soil where it can do the most good.
As Education Director & Compost House Coordinator at Atlas Organics, Leslie is responsible for growing and promoting food recycling programs including compost education, program implementation, sustainable living, agriculture advocacy and compost product sales.
She loves that her work allows her to make a difference here, while her kids enjoy the same experiences she remembers from her growing up.
