The event below is an EnvironBuzz initiative:
Mike Nevin, Compost Facilitator at FoodShare Toronto has many years of experience educating people about how to reduce their carbon footprint through composting.
This information session is a preview of Mike’s presentation at the Guelph Organic Conference coming up in January 2012 at Guelph University. The presentation will focus on the 5 factors that lead to a successful small to mid-scale composting. The factors include:
a) Feedstock and inputs
b) Bulking agents,
e) Time & labor available
He will talk about process adaptation to accommodate whatever inputs you have; common challenges and solutions; Carbon to Nitrogen ratios of commonly available materials and answer any questions you might have. There will be a discussion forum after the presentation to get audience feedback.
In addition to the information session, there will be a tour of Foodshare’s composting site, greenhouse and worm composting project. A bag of compost and a book : Wayne Robert’s “Get a life” will be given to the first 8 members that register to attend.
