Compost Demonstration / Wildlife Habitat Workshop – Central Aroostook SWCD

We are very excited to announce the debut of
our compost project along with our compost
study. On Friday July 16th from 9 am to 3pm
we will be hosting an all-day event at
Staples’ Farms in Parkhurst Siding. Signs
will be posted along the East Presque Isle
Road and on the Johnson Road where the
event will be held. We will be showcasing
our vegetable compost trial and will discuss
the use of different pesticides on rotational
crops. 1 pesticide credit has been applied
for. There is no fee for this event, however,
registration is required. Lunch will be
provided thanks to a grant from Maine DEP
Waste Diversion Program. NRCS, Catholic
Charities Maine, The Good Shephard Food
Bank, Maine DEP, Maine IF&W, and The
Xerces Society will be present to answer
questions and make presentations.

This is one event you won’t want to miss!
