Home Composting Workshop

September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn how easy and fun it is to recycle your fruit and vegetable scraps, leaves, and plant trimmings into compost in this free workshop! These workshops teach many composting options, including 3-bin, vermiculture and grasscycling, suitable for those with or without a backyard.

Compost provides valuable nutrients for your garden soil, helps retain moisture, which saves water, prevents erosion, loosens clay and compacted soils for better drainage, and suppresses weeds.

All registered participants will receive a $25 coupon on composting supplies and a sample Compost Starter mix upon completion of the class.

Co-Presenter Master Gardener and Master Composter Gaye Torjusen.  Gaye Torjusen has been an active composter and vegetable grower for over 40 years.  Her current passion is improving soil biology.
