Future Oxford Fall Speaker Series: Go Organic - "Rot and Rescue"


Two-part series will focus on "Rot," including new technologies for composting and digesting, and "Rescue," or how to minimize food waste 


Up to 60% of the waste by weight in black garbage bags in Oxford County is organic waste: potato peels, food scraps, plant matter, paper towels and more. What steps can you take to help our community reach its zero waste goal?

Future Oxford invites you to join us for two virtual (online) events on organic waste. The first will look at old and new technologies for composting and digesting. In the second one, we’ll talk about ways to minimize food waste at home, on the farm, at work and beyond.
