Compost in Montevideo

in WeedCash Network6 months ago

I was recently able to resume my volunteering in @redalcouy, after a year outside of Montevideo. Walking one day along Calle Joaquín Requena, I managed to observe a small garden without any type of restriction on its access, I said to myself: "These people are detached.

This fact alone began to greatly change my daily life in the city. The place in question is the Lyceum 26 "Liber Falco" in the Jacinto Vera neighborhood, which, at the initiative of the residents and users of the high school spaces, have been organizing to undertake pedagogical and didactic work for the community.

I consider that the mere fact of being able to classify our organic waste and effectively contribute to the symbiosis of the earth to later be used in the production of a Community Garden, is a laudable and innovative work that has a re-positive impact on the exchange community and the dynamics of new habits that came to be core."


Some advantages of having a Community Compost are:
  • Access to organic land produced by neighbors for neighbors.
  • Decrease in the emission of bad odors in garbage containers
  • General training in the Classification of organic and inorganic waste.
  • Elaboration of by-products such as eco-bricks, biodetergents,
  • Powering of endogenous community development nuclei.
  • Contribution in public policies on Food Sovereignty and Environmental Equilibrium.
  • Conservation of green areas and expansion of landscaping.
  • Among many more benefits."


It is necessary to retake the spaces of public recreation and sports to strengthen the social ties that are gradually losing with the social self-absorption of the Cities on a planetary level. Being linked to a Community Composter is a symbol of questioning, learning, work and cooperation, values ​​that our global society requires a little more every day.

We must learn from many worthy examples to follow, in the middle of 2021 there is dehumanized humanity, in need of connecting with itself and with the Planet.

A transversal objective that unites us around the globe is the fight for SOIL REGENERATION, especially in Latin America, where I consider it urgent to promote diversified food production with pertinent agroecological techniques in each region, and in this way strengthen a Local Economy Sustainable and dynamic.

This is where I shout: "Go back to the field, it is necessary ..."

Hace poco pude retomar mi voluntariado en @redalcouy , después de un año fuera de Montevideo. Paseando un día por la Calle Joaquin Requena, alcanzo a observar una pequeña huerta sin ningun tipo de restricción en su acceso, me dije a mi mismo: "Esta gente esta despegada".

Este hecho por si solo comenzo a cambiar en gran medida mi cotidianidad citadina. El lugar en cuestion es el Liceo 26 "Liber Falco" en el Barrio Jacinto Vera, el cual por iniciativa de los vecinos y usuarios de los espacios del liceo, se han venido organizando para emprender una labor pedagogica y didactica para la comunidad.

Considero que el solo hecho de poder clasificar nuestros desechos organicos y contribuir de manera efectiva a la simbiosis de la tierra para posteriormente ser utilizada en la produccion de una Huerta Comunitaria, es un trabajo loable e innovador que incide de manera re-positiva en el intercambio comunitario y la dinamica de nuevos habitos que llegaron para ser medulares.


Algunas ventajas de tener una Compostera Comunitaria son:

  • Acceso a tierra organica produccida por los vecinos para los vecinos.
  • Disminucion en la emision de malos olores en contenedores de basura
    -Capacitación general en la Clasificacion de desechos organicos e inorganicos.
  • Elaboración de subproductos como ecoladillos, biodetergentes,
  • Potenciacion de nucleos de desarrollo endogeno comunitarios.
  • Contribucion en las politicas publicas sobre Soberania Alimentaria y equlibrio Ambiental.
  • Conservacion de areas verdes y expansion de paisajismo.
  • Entre muchos mas beneficios.


Es preciso retomar los espacios de esparcimiento publico y deportivo para fortalecer los vínculos sociales que se estan perdiendo paulatinamente con el ensimismamiento social de las Ciudades a nivel planetario. Estar vinculado a una Compostera Comunitaria es simbolo de cuestionamiento, aprendizaje, trabajo y cooperacion, valores que requiere, cada dia un poco mas, nuestra sociedad global.

Debemos aprender de muchos ejemplos dignos a seguir, en pleno 2021 existe humanidad deshumanizada, necesitada de conectarse consigo misma y con el Planeta.

Un objetivo transversal que nos une al globo entero es la lucha por la REGENERACION DE LOS SUELOS, en especial en Latinoamerica, donde considero nos urge impulsar la producción diversificada de alimentos con tecnicas agroecologicas pertinentes de cada región, y de esta manera fortalecer una Economia Local Sustentable y dinamica.

Aqui es donde grito: "Volver al campo, es necesario..."




I love composting! Its funny how excited I get when I have some banana peels to throw into the pile. Although I do it myself, but I think its cool to see this in the city. What a great way to come together as one, even if people have their different beliefs.

Thank you very much for your reply. It is certainly surprising to see it in cities but it is necessary for each and every one to compost their organic waste, in this way we can have land to grow our own plants. a hug and good vibes

Nice job, I think it would be great to see this happen in more and more city's.
