Go Green Composting Webinar
‘Go Green Composting’ webinar was organized on Jan 9th to understand the principles of Agroecology and successful composting of food scraps and yard wastes. In the webinar, speaker Mr. Hithesh Gazzala emphasized the impact of Industrial agriculture in destroying the environment by emitting large amounts of green house gases. The result of which, warmer temperatures over time are changing weather patterns and disrupting the usual balance of nature. This poses many risks to human beings and all other forms of life on Earth. By adapting Agroecology concepts like Organic farming, Diversified crop rotations, Biological pest control, Agroforestry; we can build sustainable environmental landscape. Composting is the key to enrich soil naturally without using fertilizers. In the webinar, speakers Mr. Puneet Bhatnagar, Ms. Mehar Nemani and Mr. Navin Kare had demonstrated ways of composting using Geobin and DYI composting bin. The webinar was well received by the audience and we set new goals for our Atlanta’s Go Green Composting project.
