Mid-Atlantic Composting and Compost Use Webinar Series
You are invited to join our esteemed group of presenters on the third Friday of each month beginning at 2PM Eastern Time for an online version of the Mid-Atlantic Better Composting School, without the hands-on training portion. Individual webinars will be 60-75 minutes. This free-of-charge webinar series will begin in June 2017 and end in May 2018. Registration will be required in order to log-on.
The webinar series provides fundamental education on composting principles and compost use. The program will benefit experienced composters by providing refresher classes that may improve composting operations or for preparing for Compost Operators’ Certification testing. The training may also be useful for those considering starting a composting operation, at the on-farm, municipal, or industrial level. Composting regulators and compost marketers could also benefit from the knowledge on the process and the end product material use.
