Fischer attended the California Bioresources Alliance Symposium in Sacramento. They felt heartened by the incredibly well-informed researchers, composters, consultants, and regulators working to formulate sound policy for the management of California’s organics. Fischer enjoyed visiting with old friends and signing a few copies of The Advocacy. They applaud Chad White for “a brilliant job orchestrating this year’s symposium!” and extends their thanks to the Association of Compost Producers for sharing their table.
