The Composting for Farms, Schools & Community Gardens Workshop Series: Management - Del Mar

Learn mid-scale composting management techniques (best practices, troubleshooting, review of various composting systems), and participate in a hands-on 3-bin system full footprint turn.

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: 

  • Site considerations
  • Best management practices
  • Odor, dust and rodent control
  • Water/leachate management
  • ​Review of composting systems and associated costs

The hands-on section will include: 

  • Pile assessment with full footprint turn and troubleshooting of 3-bin system
