Keep on Composting in the Free World

Compost entered the lives of many organic farmers as something like a Druid sacrament. Consumers seem to intuitively acknowledge the saintly practice and product as the keystone of chemical-free agriculture. We’ll discuss the obligation to safeguard our reputation and assure the safety of compost and how it is made. Hear Matt Cotton, an expert on compost permitting and facility design, outline how compost makers comply with California State Water Board water quality requirements. Participate in the discussion about how to create a legitimate system that yields regulatory compliance and returns integrity to the foundation of organic farming.
