Get Your Spring Garden Ready!
February is a great time to start composting in your own backyard! Often called “Black Gold”, composting is nature’s incredible natural fertilizer. Aside from encouraging beneficial soil organisms and conserving a non-renewable resource, composting makes an excellent fertilizer that releases nutrients slowly at a rate, which the plants can use them.
This fun, hands-on class teaches methods for backyard and worm composting for home and community gardens. Come learn what you can do to improve your garden and prevent organic waste from ending up in the landfill! Rot On!
