Re: Barriers & Benefits to Backyard Composting and Farming in Rural Households.
2015-03-23 11:27:12 UTC
Greetings: Many rural folks don't perceive barriers or benefits to composting...we just call it "feeding chickens or hogs," feeding meat scraps to farm pets, etc. When larger-scale food waste (think tomato skins after canning, corn shucks, pea shucks, etc) is generated, that material is just spread over the garden area that the crop came from. In the rural areas that I grew up in, and live in, "composting" is integrated into daily life, and we don't think aobut it "separately." In the winter, I have a "real" composter next to the back door that is just storage until I can till the material into my garden, or spread it on my pasture combined with the winter manure accumulations. Your questions may need to define what you mean by composting, and recognize that rural folks "just compost" because that's what we've always done.
Best Practices in Park Recycling & Waste Minimization

Parks serve a variety of populations and uses. I am seeking Best Practices for minimizing waste and increasing recycling in the various park catagories..shelters, trails, dog parks, large events, fishing/boat landings and sports fields. The parks I am assisting serve a variety of income levels and cultural backgrounds. What are the innovative/cutting edge practices that you see? What facilities and equipment are cost effective? What are the attributes of successful park recycling educaiton programs?
