Andrei is committed to supporting local farmers and providing healthy eating options to all New Yorkers, and is always willing to swap recipes.
Chris Thompson is a community composter with a background in psychology and neuroscience research. After leaving the sterile laboratory for a more organic scene, he became interested in urban agriculture, soil building, and organics recovery in New York City. This led Chris to complete a Composting Apprenticeship with Earth Matter on Governors Island, where he processes GrowNYC food scraps into black gold with the aid of chickens, goats, worms, and microbes. You can find Chris collecting food scraps at the Columbia University and Fort Greene Greenmarkets. You'll know him by his impressive beard, his penchant for good conversation, and his eagle eye for non-compostable contaminants.
