The benefits of on-site composting are many, and with new methods and technologies, it is a more easily achievable goal than ever. This session will provide examples of composting methods and programs used at four different gardens and parks, each with its own resources and challenges. Our hope is that participants will be encouraged by our experiences and successes with various technologies, methods, resources, and challenges to initiate or expand on their own on-site composting operations and to work toward closing the nutrient cycle in their own gardens and parks.
