Mortality Composting Workshop

Saturday, July 13th, 2024

10am - 3pm


Join CCE and Cornell's Waste Management Specialist, Jean Bonhotal, to discuss properly constructing and maintaining mortality compost piles on your farm. The classroom session will be followed by a lunch and visit to a local farm to see their composting site and to dig into a pile to gain practical exposure to a successful composting process. 

At 10am, we will start with a classroom session and lunch in the Steuben Civil Defense Building (7220 County Route 13, Bath, NY)

Following lunch, we'll take a trip out to Bluegill Farms (7400 County Route 13, Bath NY) to dig into their compost pile and continue the discussion from the morning.


The event is free to attend due to the generous support of CCE Steuben. Registrations are required by July 10th by contacting Anne at 607-664-2568.
