Get the most from your compost. In this workshop, you'll learn how to transform your kitchen scraps and yard waste into a soil supplement for your lawn and garden. Learn the basic dos and don'ts as well as tips for speeding up the composting process. Vermicomposting (composting with a worm bin) will also be covered, so you can compost even if you don’t have a yard, or don’t want to go outside in the winter! Free worms will be available from the instructor for those who want to try vermicomposting.
Cost of the workshop is $30 for everyone. After completing the class, you will receive a $20 discount coupon toward the purchase of either an Earth Machine or New Age home compost bin.
