Past compost workshop participants have written:

“I have attended five other composting workshops and seminars. The Midwest Bio-Systems seminar has given me the most answers to my technical questions. The folks at MBS use a systematic approach to composting that I found both essential to making high quality compost and making it on a consistent basis. The thing I liked most was the fact that they took composting from the plant’s point-of-view.”

“Excellent coverage of all aspects — great to be able to see full process in both theory and practice.”

“I was very impressed. My trip paid for itself in the first half-day.”

“I liked the one-on-one treatment you provided, and the interaction with other composters is a good thing. This is a system that works! And I came away knowing how to do it!”

“The best organized, and best orchestrated workshop I ever attended.”
