Learn how to turn your food scraps, fall leaves, and other yard waste into beautiful garden compost. Find out why gardeners call compost “black gold” and how it can be used to improve both plant and soil health. We will discuss the biology of decomposition, the basics of soil structure and plant nutrient requirements. Learn how to build a compost pile so that it “cooks”, how and when to turn it, sift it and use it. Finally, we will discuss several compost bin options- some you can build yourselves, and others that are commercially available.
This class will meet Friday, January 12th from 1-2:30 pm on zoom.
