Attend the showcase to learn about scalable strategies and solutions to conserve one of the Earth's most precious resources.
StopWaste staff will be co-presenting a workshop at the showcase that addresses compost, mulch and soil, and practices to manage soil for water conservation and quality. The speakers will explore compost as a soil amendment, biofilter, and mulch, as well as sheet mulching, carbon farming/gardening and the benefits of compost and mulch to soil. The workshops fill up fast, so be sure to arrive early.
