After attending the Alumni Thematic International Exchange Seminar (TIES) on Climate Change, Digital Technology, and Global Affairs in California in 2016, Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Program (ETA) alumna Erika Mork (South Korea, 2001-2002) teamed up with Fulbright-Hays Program alumna Dr. Maria Nathan, who is a management professor at Lynchburg College, along with other college faculty and the executive director of a local farm to launch a composting pilot in Lynchburg.  
 
Made possible through an Alumni TIES small grant, their project, Building Soil and Community: An Educational Composting Pilot, aimed to reduce the production of greenhouse gases while restoring the nutrient cycle by making composting more readily available to the citizens of Lynchburg .
