the project

CT RC&D and partner organizations are working together to plan and host Connecticut's first Compost Conference scheduled for March 23, 2020 at Central Connecticut State University. This informative day will feature keynote speakers, breakout sessions, panel discussion, networking, exhibitors, and a Q&A. Attendees will learn about mid-scale composting that is applicable to the agriculture community as well as municipalities. Hear from those working on operations in our state and throughout the Northeast. This critical event will cover policy and permitting in CT and explain the whys and hows of composting for farmers and municipalities. The Connecticut Compost Conference will provide a forum to educate and discuss how composting can benefit local communities, businesses, the environment, and improve climate resiliency.

Planning partners include CCSU, CT DEEP, CT DOAG, CT RC&D, CT NOFA, USDA NRCS, UConn Extension, American Farmland Trust, CT River COG, NW Conservation District, Center for Ecotechnology (MA), CCSWC, Composting Association of VT and other partners from MA and VT.
