Agricultural Composting Project

The Agricultural Advisory Committee identified three Action Items ( 5.3.A, 5.3.B, 5.3.C) related to composting initiatives. The applicable Action Items read as follows: The initial phase of the project, that would be the primary focus for this work plan, would be to hold meetings with relevant stakeholders across the region to gauge the need and support for composting facilities. Should there be a need and general support, the project could be considered in more detail in future work plans and budgets.

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.

Current Status

No actions are currently underway at this time. It is anticipated that this project will be initiated in 2016.
