Jean Bonhotal-The Science of Composting

Jean Bonhotal came to the island with a great, informative presentation. The presentation was at the Community Center on June 25th and we thank them for the use of their facilities.
Take a couple of minutes to check out her slides BONHOTAL Science of Composting -2018


Jean has worked at the Cornell Waste Management Institute in solid waste education for over 20 years, first working for Cornell Cooperative Extension in Broome County, then for the Cornell Waste Management Institute. Reducing, repurposing, recycling and composting solid and organic residuals to mine and redirect resources from our waste stream is a systematic way to manage our waste stream.
Characterizing waste streams is important to be able to separate and determine value-added purposes for different residuals. Compost quality and consistency in the market place is also a high priority, as well as encouraging use to build healthy soils and redistribute nutrients.
Previous experience includes working with different agencies including US Forest and National Park Service, US EPA, NYS DEC and the landscape and greenhouse industry.
She received an M.S. degree in Education and Communication from SUNY Binghamton in 1991, a B.S. in Biology from Utah State University in 1984 and an A.A.S. in Natural Resources from SUNY Morrisville.
