Compost Conference Webinar Series

October 7 @ 4:00 pm - October 28 @ 6:00 pm

- Free

The CT Compost Conference scheduled for March 2020, which had been postponed has been restructured into a series of 5 free webinars. While we won’t have the opportunities to network, this event continues to play a critical role in Connecticut’s ability to better manage food scraps through composting.

This CT Compost Webinar series provides information and resources for farmers and municipalities to expand their leaf and/or manure composting operation to include food scraps. The focus of workshops will include the benefits to soil health, conservation, food waste management, and climate adaptation. Compost manufacturing and compost utilization are vital to producing healthy soils, clean air and water, and sustainable society.
