Celebrate giving back to the earth with a class on composting.
Part of transition is to identify and utilize resources appropriately. One of our biggest resources comes daily from our kitchens: vegetable scraps. Composting is a way to turn refuse into soil. Composting is for everyone. It is as viable an alternative for apartment dwellers with balcony gardens as for urban farmers with 1/2 acre plots. Composting is a simple way to restore vitality to soil and add vibrancy to plants. It is easy to make, and practically free. It can substantially reduce the amount of waste generated by a household.
Come to a Highland Park backyard to explore several different ways to make compost:
1) we will explore examples of different types of compost bins & piles
2) we will construct a series of bins for a backyard garden
3) we will construct individual worm compost bins for participants to use at home.
***Participants wanting to construct a worm bin may either bring specific supplies or purchase materials
from us for a cost of $30, payable on day of reskilling. Limit 10 participants.
Address, directions, and other information will be sent when you RSVP with your name, email, and a phone where you can be reached. Please indicate if you would like to construct a worm compost bin, and if you need a materials list or will want to use our materials.
RSVP to jnordman2@earthlink .net by Monday, 4/18 before 5pm
