Creating Compost:
Improving Soils and Limiting
What Goes Into The Waste Stream

This monthly free workshop series will cover diverse topics geared towards learning about our local environment and what we can all do to become good stewards of our communities. Workshops will be led by experts and are free to members of the community. Participants can sign up for individual sessions or the whole series.

This class introduces easy backyard composting using kitchen scraps and other materials found in and around the home. Compost is a win-win for increasing soil health and for reducing the volume of waste that goes into municipal landfills and contributes to greenhouse gases. Learn four different types of composting methods in this workshop, including outside and indoor composting, aerobic and anaerobic techniques, worm and lasagna approaches. Compost creates a rich, nutritious additive to the soil; its addition benefits all plants and vegetables. Composting helps to save money and to keep the garden and the environment healthy.

Workshop leader: This workshop will be led by Master Gardener Volunteer Kit Meenan and CCE Horticulture Educator Kristen Ossmann.
