Food Waste Compost Training Aug. 20 in Cedar Falls

By Liz Kolbe

Composting is such a simple idea… but then you try it and end up with a giant, stinky pile that seems questionable even to look at. When is it done? Will it ever be? Should it be on concrete? Covered? Watered? Wait, is this legal? Do I need a license? Open it? Turn it? Is the white stuff good? Food waste? Bones? Organic certification? Do I need two piles? Three?

Attend a workshop August 20, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm, to help answer these questions (and more). The Iowa Waste Reduction Center at UNI is hosting Robert Rynk from the US Composting Council for the day-long workshop in Cedar Falls. The workshop will focus on farm composting fundamentals and techniques and provide specific information about bringing food waste onto farms for composting. Registration for the full day is $20 for early birds, sign up soon!
