The Quivira Coalition hosts a number of workshops throughout the year for land managers interested in improving or maintaining the health of the land they steward. These workshops usually consist of one to three days on working lands where participants are given the opportunity to learn by doing. Topics can include erosion control, biological monitoring, pasture management, soil health assessment, plant identification, native seed harvesting and more! We partner with multiple individuals and groups — agricultural producers, organizations, state and federal agencies, tribes, and others — to bring a diversity of perspectives and expertise to the conversation. If you would like to partner with us on a land health workshop, please contact our workshops team at email@example.com.

Compost Production Field Trip for Edgewood Soil
Water Conservation District Residents!
March 20, 2021
10:00 – 12:00 pm MDT
Learn how to compost from the small- to medium- scale to transform waste into a valuable soil amendment! Instead of food and agricultural waste going to the dump, learn two methods (Static Aerated Pile Composting and Vermicomposting) to make compost to use in your farm or garden.
This workshop is funded through a grant targeting Edgewood Soil and Water Conservation District community members; please stay tuned for future workshops that are open to the broader public!
We will adhere to public health guidelines – currently the attendance is capped at 20 participants and we’ll have two groups in different locations on the property; we will be in contact if we need to change the group size. Masks are mandatory for all participants, if you do not have one we will provide one to you.
Participants will be compensated for mileage for 120 mile round trip from Edgewood area and will receive a reference book to help them set up and maintain a compost pile at their own operation.
