Join me and a panel of experts as we present techniques to properly manage your landscape and implement manure management strategies for farms and ranches. These proven methods prevent erosion and protect waterways in San Diego County.

Webinar Highlights include:

  • Proper manure management and composting
  • Compost, compost socks, and compost blankets  
  • Catchment basins and rock interrupters
  • Native plantings
