If it is found to be in demand and generally supported, future phases of this project may include a feasibility study looking at the possibility of connecting the existing regional organics composting program with the current composting needs of the agriculture and aquaculture communities. The intent could be to explore the establishment of a shared regional composting facility where agricultural wastes could be incorporated into the existing organic feedstock and be processed into nutrient-rich compost, which could be made available for application to farm land to increase nutrient levels. The project could also include the identification of potential composting facility sites and promotion of local composting.
