Designing & implementing a windrow compost system for small to large farms
July 8, 2017 Field Day
9am-3pm, $70 (lunch included)
This field day workshop brings us on-site the Curtes Farm near West Bend, WI where Grounded LLC processes its hot controlled fermented compost. Explore the steps involved in choosing your compost site location, resources, tools and machinery, and how to best design, manage, and implement a windrow compost system for small to large farm operations. This course will open discussions on how integrating biodynamic compost preparations can aid in the fermentation process and how high quality compost can reclaim damaged soils, build natural humus structure, and alleviate environmental impacts resulting from less ideal
manure management styles.
