Cal Poly will host a five-day professional compost training workshop in March. The universitys Center of Sustainability in the College of Agriculture, Food & Environmental Services will hold the workshop March 24 to 28 at the Cal Poly Compost Unit.
The event will be made up of two parts: a four-day certificate-training program on large-scale composting followed by a one-day workshop. Participants may sign up for one of the two sessions, or both at a reduced cost.
The four-day course costs $450, which includes instructional materials and lunch.
A one-day session costing $150 will take place March 28 and provide information on research and uses of compost for growers at all scales of production including nutrient management and soil health.
Registration for both courses is $500.
To register, call the Center for Sustainability at 756-5086 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
