Our Compost Climate Connections webinar series features the crucial role of compost to protect the climate. In the first of the series, Compost Sequesters Carbon & Delivers Other Ecosystem Benefits (September 17, 2019), Dr. Sally Brown of the University of Washington discussed how compost avoids methane emissions and sequesters carbon in soil. She will presented metrics that consider other ecosystem services and public health impacts to illustrate just how valuable compost is. Carbon sequestration is critical but only one piece of the pie. When applied to soils, compost increases soil organic carbon, soil microbial activity, soil fertility, soil water holding capacity, and more. View the recording below!
This webinar is one in a series ILSR offers to advance composting. View our webinar resources here.
