We will be having a workshop that will look at two methods of turning your waste into an input and save you money in the long run. I will be reporting the findings of the Southern Agriculture Research and Education On-Farm Grant that was awarded to myself and John Pearson at Stardust Farms. The project was using a large scale method of solarization to recycle used potting soil. It has proven to be a great, inexpensive way to treat soil to use it back in production. We will also have Dr. Monica Ozorez-Hampton teaching about composting dumped soil and plants for safe reuse. A free lunch from Diamond R Fertilizer will be available. I would also like to mention our sponsors of Southern SARE and Hillsborough County Soil and Water Conservation District in helping out with this project. This is a workshop you will not want to miss!
