Grand Opening and Partner Celebration in Orlando, Florida


In Mid-May we hosted a Grand Opening and Partner Celebration at our Energy Garden in Central Florida. The facility uses anaerobic digestion to convert 130,000 tons per year of organic wastes into clean energy and natural fertilizers.

After the ribbon cutting all 85+ guests joined together with their very own piece of ribbon for a group photo.  It was a magical moment for organic waste, anaerobic digestion, Harvest Power and Friends, and sustainability efforts everywhere.
