COMPOST AROUND THE WORLD

This one-hour webinar will cover compost applications as a preeminent erosion control soil cover, compost berms, and compost filter socks including Filtrexx SiltSoxx and GroSoxx.

  • See how 300T of City of Redding Greenwaste Compost, Mychorrizae, and Biosol and CA native grasses applied over a 10 acre Burn Dump , filled with annual weeds and star thistle became a native grassland. Still successful after 17 years.
  • See how Compost Blanket (again Redding Greenwaste Certified Compost) applied to a 1:1 slope at Shasta College experienced a 8” in 4 hr storm (4” in one hr) and didn’t erode!! • See Compost Blankets and Compost Socks “Living Walls” were successfully applied near Auckland New Zealand - 8000 feet of bank protection with Environmentally-Sensitive Methods, e.g. Log Lunkers, Newbury Riffles, Naturalized Morphology and Living Walls. Still successful after 10 years.
  • Compost blankets and Socks and Berms applied in Canadian Rockies , still successful after 14 years.
  • Discuss Carbon Sequestration while reducing wild fires on a huge scale, all that lacking is resolve and slight paradigm shifts.
