LEARN TO COMPOST – Westport Grange
March 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
LEARN TO COMPOST: Turn kitchen scraps and yard waste into black organic soil and keep them put of the landfill!
2-4 pm Saturday, March 28, Westport Grange
Home composting is both fun and easy to do, and does not require large investments of time, money, or effort to be successful. Composting your kitchen scraps and yard waste helps divert material from your local landfill (Americans average a pound a day in food waste) and creates valuable organic soil for use in your yard and garden. Join us for conversation and a demonstration on building a simple composting system. The design focuses on: low cost; low-tech construction with common household tools, and ease of use and maintenance. Construction plans will be provided.
