Compost Basics Workshop

Saturday, June 1, 2019

This workshop will show you some easy ways to start composting and do it successfully, and we’ll review other options to keep food scraps out of the trash. You’ll learn strategies for jump-starting an old pile, how to keep smells down, and animals out. Join Cassandra Hemenway, Outreach Manager at the Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District, graduate of the UVM Master Composter program, certified compost facility operator, and all around compost nerd. She’ll talk to you about managing food scraps, why they break down and how to use food scraps as a resource in your own yard. Everyone goes home with a starter kit including a counter top pail, and a composting booklet. Soil Saver Composters and Green Cones will be available for workshop participants at deeply discounted rates. Participants must preregister at: http://www.cvswmd.org/program-registration.html
