Learn how to recycle nutrients back into the soil to build your growing space and community!

 

This webinar includes a recorded tour of an on-farm compost operation using passive windrow, ASP, vermicomposting, and three-bin composting systems for re-processing valuable farm and food resources into compost. Designed for growers on numerous scales we will cover the basics and mechanics of composting along with an open Q and A to answer your compost-related questions.
