My guest this week is Eric Werbalowsky of Ventura Organic Garden Design. Eric is a permaculturist, edible landscaper designer, and award-winning compost master also known as Doctor Compost.
Eric spends his time engaging and empowering clients with their food, shelter, energy, and transportation systems to increase their quality of life, and decrease negative social & environmental impacts. We chat about composting and a whole bunch of other stuff in this week’s podcast.

Get out there and compost, whether it’s in a bin, in a garden bed, or in a trench. Composting builds top soil, reduces carbon emissions, and if done right, can actually sequester carbon back in the soil. All good reasons to start composting today!
