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.
