Urban Composter Design Competition for Panama City’s Historic Casco Viejo

A urban agriculture program underway in Panama City’s old quarter is sponsoring a design competition for the perfect balcony-sized composter. Designs must be compact, simple to build out of local materials, cost less than $25 to construct and fit within the character of the neighborhood.

Panama City’s old quarter, Casco Viejo (also called Casco Antiguo), is a UNESCO World Heritage site that is in the early stages of revitalization. With a large percentage of its population living below the poverty line, a group of local organizations and companies have begun an urban agriculture program in an attempt to provide residents with a higher degree of self-sustenance and a wider variety of nutritional options.

The program is sponsored by Conservatorio SA, Arco Properties (www.arcoproperties.com), Island Planning Corporation, The Canal House (www.canalhousepanama.com) and Fundacion Calicant
