About Our Webinars
We started our webinars in 2018 as a new way for network partners to connect with us and others in New Hampshire working on issues that affect the food system. Most of our webinars are cost-free and open to anyone intersted in joining us, and we feature different presenters and topics each month! This year, we are hosting the monthly webinar series to:
Highlight the diversity of food system work happening throughout New Hampshire;
Connect network partners across the state and across food system sectors;
Create space for sharing updates, asking questions, and promoting upcoming events;
Share knowledge and resources; and
Build stronger relationships throughout the network

Food Waste Diversion
Join this webinar about the current status of composting organics in NH, and a look ahead to what the future may hold. We will be talking with Sarah McGraw and Jenny Humpshries of Mr. Fox Composting. Mr. Fox Composting has been in business for 10 years providing residential and commerical organics hauling as well as offering event services. They will talk about why their model works and how it is helping more Maine and New Hampshire communities divert organics from the landfill. Reagan Bissonnette of the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, will provide an overview of the laws and regulations related to composting in New Hampshire—including pathways for composting meat and dairy—and discuss possible policy changes that could support more food waste reduction. She will also highlight the NRRA's Yes in My Back Yard! program that encourages organics diversion at businesses, schools, and recycling centers in NH and beyond.

She loves knowing the work being done is having an immediate impact on waste reduction.
