CompostingMatter is going to attend NCSU's 12th Vermiculture Conference, October 10-11, 2011. The conference will take place at The Friday Center, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
North America's only symposium on mid-to-large scale vermiculture and worm compost is coming to Chapel Hill. You will get the tools you need to start or expand your earthworm or vermicompost production operation. You will also learn the latest research on vermicompost and extracts (tea) effects on plant growth and their impacts on disease and pest reduction.
Field Trip: This conference will include a field tour of a grocery store that pre-composts and vermicomposts food waste (including meat) and cardboard on-site.
This conference is sponsored by NC State University, Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering, and NC Cooperative Extension.
