Composting Programs and Tribal Food Security (ITEP)

March 21, 2017 to March 23, 2017
Tucson, Arizona

The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) course will focus on providing strategies for creating and managing successful composting projects as part of your Tribe’s overall waste diversion activities. We will also explore the connections between composting programs and tribal food security, and methods for creating partnerships and collaborations that will protect tribal natural resources and address community health and wellbeing. Three different instructors will be providing their expertise through lecture and group activities. During this course we will be touring Tohono O’odham's San Xavier Co-op Farm and their composting activities.
