Composting 101

Monthly on the 3rd Saturday 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

The session for THIS SATURDAY, June 17th is CANCELLED.  Please consider joining us for our session in July when we will incorporate some of the basics of composting with kitchen do's and don'ts.

Come join us to learn the basics of composting. We provide you with the knowledge you need to compost at home and turn your trash into treasure! Composting not only helps the environment, but it also helps your gardens to flourish and thrive, without the need for fertilizers. If you want to join us in learning the why's and how's of turning your waste into "Black Gold," then sign up for Conscious Composting 101: we meet once a month, beginning in June, for a period of 6 months.
