On-Farm Composting Course
Learn composting management techniques from basics to troubleshooting; sifting to vector control; and regulatory considerations to global impacts. This course will combine lectures, hands-on training, and a field trip to operational composting facilities. Composting on your farm, ranch, or large property is an ideal way to manage crop residues, manures, and other organic waste while creating a stellar soil amendment. During this three-week course, address the unique strategies, challenges, and opportunities that arise through medium-scale composting. This course does not address typical residential composting or large-scale commercial composting. It is intended for those mid-sized systems that fall in between, particularly farms and horse ranches.
