Compost Basics
Come learn about the importance of managing your organic waste (food scraps and yard trimmings) at home. As the drought worsens and the climate warms, home-based waste management has never been more relevant. With wide reaching applications, backyard composting cuts your contribution to landfills, conserves water, and builds healthy all-natural soils that store carbon. At this workshop you will learn to build, manage and utilize a home compost pile. Please join us for an exciting journey into the world of rot, exploring why something that so many are repulsed by might in fact be the way we save the planet.
