You’ve heard that you should compost…now it’s time to learn how!
Composting is a simple task that each of us can complete responsibly as we strive to reduce the negative effects of environmental degradation and soil loss. Just as essential to our lives as recycling and waste removal, composting has the potential to build healthy soils and reduce landfill area. Whether you’re eager to green your lifestyle or increase soil health, there are several options for small-scale composting that can be done at home, in an apartment or in the garden.
This beginner-friendly workshop will cover the basics of outdoor composting, vermicompost and bokashi. Participants will also learn what a healthy compost pile requires to be productive and ways to troubleshoot common issues. Weather permitting, we will walk around the CGC’s compost area and discuss the pros and cons of several types of compost systems.
