Composting Info Session and Tour

The information session was a preview of Mike Nevin’s presentation at the Guelph Organic Conference at GuelphUniversity. The session focused on the five factors that lead to a successful small to mid-scale composting. The factors include Feedstock and inputs, Bulking agents, Air/oxygen, Moisture and Time & labour available.
He spoke 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. A discussion forum was held after pre the presentation to get audience feedback.
In addition to the information session, there was a tour of Foodshare’s composting site – a greenhouse and worm composting project. A bag of compost and a book: Wayne Robert’s “Get a life” was given to the first eight members that registered to attend.
