Are you feeling less than energetic or feel that you may have a black thumb? Or are you feeling energized and creative? Composting is easy and brings wonderful results! Join us and learn just how simple and rewarding composting can be. The concepts presented at this popular workshop demonstrate how to compost in many situations, and in ways that suit your level of energy. Workshop goals include:
- Inspire participants to maximize use of raw materials found in the yard at home – whether it is from wood chips to pine needles, kitchen waste and lawn trimmings to yard waste and manure.
- Increase creative ways to use mulch, and to improve the cold compost pile;
- Learn the difference between “slow” and “fast” compost techniques;
- To motivate participants to increase hot composting to enable the production of more and higher quality compost.
