dirt pile
The UNH Composting Facility is a collaborative effort among several UNH partners. It was initiated in the early 2000's as a partnership of the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture, Office of Sustainability (within COLSA at that time), NH Agricultural Experiment Station and UNH Dining Services. It has undergone upgrades and expansion to provide an efficient operation supporting the effective management and utilization of nutrients and enhancement of soil health. It provides opportunities for teaching, research and outreach on sustainable reuse of farm and food wastes, and is thereby consistent with COLSA/NHAES's regional and national leadership in sustainable agriculture and food systems, and our network of partnerships to maximize impacts and benefits to our stakeholders.
