Broaden your understanding about compost and better ways it can be used to improve water quality and soil health. We’ll review the science of compost and the soil it amends, including how it impacts nutrients like phosphorus. We’ll then explore effective strategies and techniques for using compost in a variety of applications, such as to prevent erosion, contribute to site stabilization, remediate compacted soils, establish vegetation, and manage stormwater within various GSI installations. Here you’ll learn about new ideas and approaches. Particular attention will be paid to minimizing the risk of leaching phosphorus back into the water.
This webinar will also discuss larger concepts as related to compost, such as the pros and cons of meeting Vermont’s goals for diverting organics from landfills and how this relates to limiting phosphorus loads within a watershed.
These webinars are hosted by the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, the Composting Association of Vermont, and the Lake Champlain Sea Grant Institute.
