Green Industry Basics: Understanding specific technical aspects of the ‘green industry’ is essential to the successful marketing of compost. This workshop was developed to provide composters and compost marketers with a basic technical understanding of soil and plant functions, and explain how compost assists these functions - ‘WHY COMPOST IS SO GOOD FOR THE SOIL AND WHY IT HELPS PLANTS GROW’. The course also describes, products that compete with compost, as well as the pros and cons of their usage, compared to compost. Without understanding the basics of the industries in which we sell, it is impossible to be productive in the sale of compost. This course provides these basics on an easy to understand and practical level. An example of the workshop agenda can be found here.

Course Instructor: Ron Alexander, an American horticulturist and veteran compost salesman and sales/marketing manager with over 25 years of experience in compost (and other organic recycled product) marketing and end use.
