Have you ever wondered whether you should put that bread corner in the compost? What about your eggshells? If you have questions about what can safely go in your home compost bin or if you would like to learn how to build your own composting system at home, join us for a lunch-n-learn session on composting!

We will cover the basics of composting, what can go in and what should stay, and ideas for different home composting systems. Why compost? Putting food scraps into the compost bin rather than the trash can greatly reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills. If you are a gardener, composting can provide you with a source of organic matter and free, homemade fertilizer for your plants.

Bring a bag lunch, and plan to join us on June 20!

This program is free and open to the public. Space is limited, so prior registration is requested. Sign up today by filling in this form or by calling 757.1290.

There will be a Fencing School on Tuesday, June 4 at the Piedmont Research Station in Salisbury, NC. The fencing school is for livestock producers raising any species of livestock (including equine).

The program will begin at 9:30 a.m., with doors opening at 9 a.m. There will be a classroom session in the morning, followed by hands-on fence building in the afternoon. The day will conclude by 4 p.m. Topics that will be covered include a discussion regarding temporary versus permanent fencing, budget considerations, types of materials (post and wire), electric fencing, and safety. In the hands-on sessions, participants will have the opportunity to help set up electric fencing, learn about electric fence troubleshooting, and help construct a high tensile fence, including building an H-Brace.
