Reno Rot Riders Receives Grant Funding

The RRR has received funding to build a new trailer and expand its compost collection operations through Permaculture Research Institute USA (PRI/USA).

With PRI/USA’s support and three major upcoming events, the RRR looks to expand its reach to divert more waste from the landfill, support carbon sequestration, build local soil fertility and promote biking and growing food in the city.
