Harvest Cycle Coordinator
Katie Murphy has managed Groundwork RI’s Harvest Cycle compost program since 2018. After serving two years as an Americorps VISTA, she has transitioned to a grant-funded position focused on building out Groundwork’s new West End Compost Hub. Outside of Groundwork, she is an active member of Zero Waste Providence and the Rhode Island Food Policy Council. She is fascinated by individual and cultural relationships to everyday materials, and sees the compost process as a transformative space for remembering and re-imagining those relationships. Before joining Groundwork, she worked for Farm Fresh Rhode Island and The Climate Mobilization as a Climate Year Fellow. She hopes to center her life’s work in transforming cities to become more equitable, beautiful, and liveable.
