    Come and learn a Master Composter’s Secret Recipe for easy, low maintenance composing.

    Food and yard wastes can easily be turned into a nourishing and valuable soil amendment. Discover the drivers of the decomposition process, find out how to troubleshoot and avoid problems, and become aware of the many benefits of compost. ‘Black gold’, revered by gardeners for how it enriches the soil, also reduces wastes sent to landfills or incinerators as well as reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) and other powerful greenhouse gases.

    All that—and it’s easy and free.
