Composting Workshop

Back by popular demand, come learn composting with Rian Bedard of EcoMovement Composting!  Hosted by Port City Makerspace & The Greater Seacoast Permaculture Group.

To RSVP for this event, you need to go here: http://www.portcitymakerspace.com/index.cfm/calendar/composting-workshop-2-4pm/

Come learn the basics of backyard composting, the dos and don'ts, how to keep your pile active, and the basic science behind it.  We'll also work together to set up a simple composting set up made mostly from scavenged materials at Makerspace.  Rian can further talk about how it is done on a large scale at commercial facilities.  Bring your questions, success stories and failure stories to share and ask about for some expert advice!

This workshop will cost $20 per person, and will be capped at 20 participants.  Again, RSVP for this event here: http://www.portcitymakerspace.com/index.cfm/calendar/composting-workshop-2-4pm/

Rian Bedard is a certified Permaculture Designer and instructor. He started a Zero Waste program as manager of the Me and Ollie's cafe in Downtown Portsmouth. He worked as Assistant Director of the Green Alliance, where he realized that there was a demand for compost hauling service. In November of 2009 he decided to venture into the hauling industry and started a company called EcoMovement. They currently have over 100 clients and are diverting an estimated 20 tons of food waste from the landfill each week.  They will soon be opening a commercial composting facility in the Seacoast as well.

    Oops! I'll have to cancel on this one. The price tag is a bit much for me.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
