Renewable Sonoma believes that education is one of the key pillars to support a successful organics recycling program. Visit this page regularly to find out about workshops, classes, informational videos, etc.

Renewable Sonoma does many presentations. Our next one is the Marin Sustainable Enterprise Conference "From Healthy Soil to Healthy Food Systems" at Embassy Suites, 101 McInnis Pkwy, San Rafael: Thursday October 25. You can download the short presentation by clicking on the picture.

A strong, resilient, regenerative agricultural community lies at the foundation of a successful organics recycling facility. That includes the recyling of agricultural discards. We can process them at a centralized facility or they can be recycled on-farm. Our team has been long-time supporters of on-farm composting and we have translated that support into action by offering workshops, speaking at conferences and teaching agricultural composting at the SRJC Shone Farm.

Agricultural Composting Class Susag 103 is offered at the SRJC Shone Farm (select Spring 2019 > S > Sustainable Agriculture > Susag 103). Registration is now open. This class also welcomes backyard gardeners and landscapers. All of our organics are now shipped out of County. Why not learn how to compost your own? The class is taught by our own soil scientist Will Bakx.

Employment Position Open. Shone farm is building a State-of-the-Art on-farm compost system. We are looking for a part-time compost technician to help build the system, produce compost, keep records and assist in the education program. See announcement for details.

Carbon Farming. Renewable Sonoma will play an active role in promoting soil health and carbon farming./gardening in our community. Our soil scientist Will Bakx works closely together with the Marin Carbon Project, which has now expanded to a state level. Learn more about carbon farming with compost in the video below.
