Bob Shaffer is an agricultural consultant from Sonoma County, California, and also has a coffee plantation in Hawaii. He consults for a variety of crops around the country, and has become an expert in the Albrecht system of biology, but his specialty is in compost. In this talk from the 2010 Acres U.S.A. annual conference, he brought all of these components together to teach an audience of farmers about what works in the real world, and what is simply a myth. In addition to his consulting work, Shaffer also works with Recology and Jepson Prairie Organics in California.
