This workshop does NOT address typical residential composting or large-scale commercial composting. It is intended for those systems that fall in between: farms, parks, community gardens, schools, businesses, etc.
In this workshop, we'll cover the following topics:
- Overview of mid-scale composting basics, including: feedstock, compost recipes, bulk density and equipment
- Tour of Solana Center's mid-scale compost site at the Del Mar Fairground's Infield Farm
The hands-on section will include:
- Demonstration build of an aerated static pile
