Whether its for your kitchen, home or farm resources, learn how to improve your existing compost system or design, implement and manage a new compost system.

    Instructor Angela Curtes is owner of Grounded LLC (www.groundedllc.net) a small business located in southeast Wisconsin, which produces, sells, and educates about a hot controlled fermentation compost integrating 12th century methods with biodynamic principles. A native of Wisconsin, Angela has worked for over 23 years in the fields of environmental and wilderness education, natural and farm lands preservation, and soil fertility, chromatography, compost production, and education. She has worked for local and national land trusts and private individuals aiding to preserve over 2,900 acres of natural and farm lands in southeast WI since 2001. Her latest venture in safeguarding our living soils, began in Germany in 2012 where she intensively studied the hot controlled compost method in large scale farming operations.
