Turning compost into energy? Yes, the farm does that, too. Come learn about biogas digestion, a highly advanced form of creating renewable energy that is made widely in countries like Germany and Sweden. Bob Hamburg, a biogas-systems expert and author of the forthcoming book “Dragon Husbandry: The Why and Wherefore of Biogas Systems,” will discuss the history and current uses of biodigestion, followed by a tour and exercise at the farm’s biodigester led by Assistant Farm Manager Matt Steiman. Participants also will see the industrial-sized biodigester at Mains Farms in Newville in action. Space is limited to 12. First come, first serve.
