CLIMATE ACTION:Composting with San Jose Conservation Corps + Charter School
California Climate Action Corps - Community Climate Action Day, a climate volunteer event and celebration hosted in collaboration with California Volunteers, HandsOn Bay Area, the City of San Jose, Veggielution, and other San Jose community organizations! As part of California Climate Action Week, hundreds of volunteers will support projects throughout the city focused on urban greening, organic waste and edible food recovery, and wildfire resiliency.
Volunteers will be creating a compost pile, processing finished compost in the on-site trommel screen, and helping prepare bags of finished compost that will be distributed to urban gardeners during San Jose Conservation Corps' Zero Waste Saturday Events.

About California Climate Action Corps
In California, climate change is a threat to systems and people across the state. The impacts to our environment and health are worsening as we experience longer and more frequent droughts, devastating wildfires, and more. Each of us has a role to play. You can take meaningful action today to help communities across our state.
In 2020, as a part of California’s comprehensive strategy to address the climate crisis, California Volunteers, Office of the Governor, created the country’s first state-level climate service corps. The service corps was established to empower all Californians to take meaningful action to safeguard the climate.
