Nick Andrews, extension agent at NWREC, wrote (via Robin Rosetta) to tell us about an upcoming forum that will be of interest to nursery growers who do composting:
As you know, DEQ is drafting new Rules for Composting Facilities in Oregon that will impact on-farm composting. In response to critical public comments after they released the first draft rule, they are proposing a new approach.
The forum will be from 1-6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18 at Oregon State University, Crop Science Building, Room 138, Corvallis, Ore. One doesn’t need to attend the entire time, but just drop by when it’s convenient to learn more and give input. For more information, contact Nick Andrews (503-678=1264, ext. 149, email@example.com) or Charlie Landman (503-229-6461, firstname.lastname@example.org).
ADD, 2008.10.31, 1:47 p.m.: There’s a page right here that outlines the process thus far, though at last check the page was out of date.
