About this event

Workshop Description

The Central Coast Rangeland Coalition invites you to a day of conversations about compost application to degraded rangelands. The day’s host, Alameda County Resource Conservation District, will describe its Healthy Soils Demonstration project examining the effects of compost on steep (15-30%) slopes. Preliminary field data will be shared, as well as diverse perspectives on grassland and soil responses to compost, costs, benefits, logistics, and potential problems. After lunch, participants will tour the field site and engage in stations focused on vegetation, soils, and compost quality.

Goals

1) Share resources for implementing soil health practices on degraded rangelands.

2) Improve understanding of feasibility of compost addition on degraded rangelands with difficult terrain.

3) Improve understanding of degraded rangeland responses to compost addition.

4) Improve participant understanding of where and how to appropriately apply the compost addition practice on degraded rangelands
