Please join us for the initial webinar in our composting and compost use series. There is no charge to begin your discovery or renewal of composting knowledge, but registration is required.
Greg Evanylo, Professor & Extension Specialist, Department of Crop & Soil Environmental Sciences, Virginia Tech, specializes in the use of residual byproducts from agricultural, industrial, and municipal activities. His work clarifies the availability, transport, and effects of nutrients, trace elements, and organic matter in residuals on plant health, soil properties, and water quality. Greg is a member of the U.S. Composting Council, the Water Environment Federation, the Soil Science Society of America, and the American Society of Agronomy.
You are invited to join our esteemed group of instructors 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, including Q&A. 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.
