The Composting for Farms, Schools & Community Gardens Workshop Series: Overview - Del Mar

Learn the basics of mid-scale composting, tour Solana Center’s mid-scale compost site at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, and participate in a hands-on ASP demo build.
 

This workshop does NOT address typical residential composting or large-scale commercial composting. It is intended for those systems that fall in between: farms, parks, community gardens, schools, businesses, etc.

In this workshop, we'll cover the following topics: 

  • Overview of mid-scale composting basics, including: feedstock, compost recipes, bulk density and equipment
  • Tour of Solana Center's mid-scale compost site at the Del Mar Fairground's Infield Farm

The hands-on section will include: 

  • Demonstration build of an aerated static pile
