Founder, WeRadiate

At WeRadiate we believe:

Good soil makes healthy plants | Good soil makes strong communities | Good soil makes our city sustainable 

I discovered the magic of composting as an Indicorps Fellow in Pondicherry, India. The creation of food scraps into healthy, natural fertilizer for our gardens, parks and cities sparked an incredible interest. Over the past several years, working in the government, non-profit and educational sectors, I discovered the importance of healthy, high-quality compost standards.

After a successful fundraiser using the ioby platform, we are able to modernize compost technology for urban agricultural settings. This technology allows us to monitor important data so composters can conveniently track the health of their system anytime. We strive to assist municipalities and communities to harness technology and build stronger closed-loop ecosystems and economies. WeRadiate is on the forefront with data tracking to ensure regulatory compliance for compost quality assurance.

Join us as @WeRadiateNY together!
