Composting 101

100_0438Discover how easy it is to create nutrient-rich compost for your garden.

This outdoor, hands-on class will show you how to create rich compost using food, livestock and yard waste. Compost is fundamental to organic vegetable gardening and will improve and enliven any type of garden soil. Compost can be expensive to purchase - and many of us have all the materials we need at home or in our neighborhoods to create it for free! Learn what systems work best for you and how to find additional free sources of compostable material in the community. Do you have urban livestock? We will also cover how to use livestock waste as compost. 

We will be building a hot compost pile in class, so dress for messy materials and get ready to make "black gold"!

This class is a great follow-up to "Organic Gardening 101" and pairs well with all of our veggie gardening and livestock classes.
