The Compost Council of Canada (CCC) announced that its regional workshops are being turned into “one great national online event, allowing for our whole organics recycling team across Canada to be together.” The sessions, three in English and one in French, are two hours long — 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM Eastern. The series kicks off on March 23 with “It’s All About Our Soil Destined Products,” and features these presentations:

- Cost Analysis of the Impacts on Municipal Utilities and Biosolids Management to Address PFAS Contamination, Janine Burke-Wells, NEBRA: North East Biosolids & Residuals Association
The theme of the workshop on March 25 is “Technical Advances and Case Studies.” Topics include: Step-by-step guide to building an aerated static pile heat recovery facility; Codigestion case studies and a review of the handbook for codigestion projects at municipal wastewater treatment facilities; and Compost use for cannabis growers. The third workshop, “Research Matters!,” is on March 30 and will cover: Soil restoration and urban tree health; Compost and mulch application on cherries and grapes; and Guide to on-farm vermicomposting and vermiculture. Registration for all three workshops is $120 for Council members and $200 for potential Council members.
