Mr. Alexander will provide technical and practical data, as well as specifications for the use of compost in traditional landscaping and non-traditional “green infrastructural” applications. He will provide practical techniques for complying with current soil BMPs and innovative site BMPs such as living embankments and flood and slide restoration. These include protecting existing soil and vegetation and using compost and other organic amendments effectively. He will also discuss how to specify and inspect soil and compost and provide practical “lessons learned” from many projects: big, small, urban, rural, public and private.
