Maria, Would it be appropriate for producers of professionally and
safely made composts to take their composted organics to such markets as
a means of reaching the farmers and possibly even educating those who
are interested in the value of composting as an alternative to
landfills? Recently in Oklahoma we had a wonderful session with
recyclers, environmentalists and others working together to introduce
composting as a means of halting the spread of incineration and
landfillwhich wastes otganics and pollutes air, water, and soil. i would
invite those with such agricultural inclinations to investigate the
International Composting Association (details on my website below) as a
means of developing better composting and getting that compost back into
the soil. We have a meeting in Lake Lure NC on October 23 &24 with
speakers from around the country to address that and other composting
issues! Its free.
