Stefan Stehling has been studying soils, compost, plants and gardening for over 20 years. Pursuing an interest in small-scale agriculture led to learning biointensive techniques from John Jeavons, the founder of Ecology Action. Since 2004, he has worked with the Compost Club to bring recycling, compost education and worm bin systems to hundreds of students in dozens of schools throughout the North Bay. Stefan also works with elementary and middle school students in science and ecology and is the owner of ROOTS Solutions, LLC, specializing in growing solutions to protect our soil and water resources.
