The Oklahoma Compost Conference first started in 2015 as a way to discuss how compost can benefit local communities, businesses, and the environment. We believe in raising awareness for the many uses of compost, and that by helping spread stories of successful projects, we can help Oklahoma.
Now in our sixth year, the OK Compost Conference is going virtual for this 4-part series that will feature a range of topics from different scales: small, medium, large scale composting, and medical marijuana.
