COLUMBUS — Livestock Mortality Composting workshops are being offered March 7 in Carey, about 60 miles south of Toledo, and March 8 in Newark, about 40 miles east of Columbus. Registration is $10 and can be paid at the door.
A composting manual is included. Proper composting — done without odors, vermin or objectionable gases — is the focus. The program will be the same at both places. Experts from Ohio State University Extension and from area Soil and Water Conservation Districts will speak at the workshops.
The March 7 workshop runs from 7-9 p.m. at the Wyandot County Recycling Center, 11385 County Highway 4, Carey. Call Ken Stucky at 419-447-7073 or Chris Bruynis at 419-294-4931 for more information.
The March 8 workshop goes from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the office of the program’s host, OSU Extension in Licking County, 771 E. Main St., Suite 103, Newark. For details, contact Howard Siegrist, 740-670-5315, email@example.com.
