Are you interested in:
- joining the Nebraska Compost Council (NECC)
- learning more about soil health and biochar
- available conservation opportunities in Nebraska?
If any of these topics peak your interest, then don’t forget to register for the Nebraska Recycling Council’s Fall Conference on September 19, 2023. If you are only interested in joining the Nebraska Compost Council or are a member already, and do not want to attend the conference, then feel free to just come to the NECC bi-monthly meeting. The meeting is from 8:30-9:30 AM, before the fall conference begins. We will be discussing current events and what types of compost activities would foster higher participation and increased membership for our state chapter. Regardless of level of participation in these events, please stop by the NECC vendor table and say hello. The meeting and the conference will be held at The Graduate, 141 N 9th St, Lincoln, NE.
President of the Nebraska Compost Council, CEO of Flatwater Carbon, and biochar expert Nash Leef, will present his knowledge and experiences with biochar and soil health in the All About Carbon breakout session of the conference starting at 2 PM. Following this presentation, Nebraska NRCS Outreach Coordinator Brach Johnson will present on available conservation opportunities in Nebraska. There will be time for open discussion and questions at the end of the All About Carbon breakout session.
The NRC Fall Conference agenda is full of awesome presentations and vendor booths relating to and showcasing a variety of recycling topics in Nebraska. Come join us for a fun day of learning and networking at The Graduate!
