Free Composting Workshop in Warren Tuesday night April 21

The Master Composter & Recycler program is offering several free workshops that will give you all the basic information needed to start and maintain a compost bin. The lecture/workshop is roughly an hour and a half. Come learn about how you could be turning all of your food scraps as well as leaf and yard waste into a valuable soil amendment by composting. Various topics will be discussed in this workshop including; the benefits of composting, the do’s and don’ts, how to build and maintain a compost, as well as composting with worms!

There are only five words to remember when making compost: brown, green, chopped, water and air. Mix brown (dead leaves or straw, for example) with green (grass clippings, vegetable trimmings), chop them up with a lawnmower or shredder and add a little moisture. Toss it all together like a big stir-fry, and that’s it.
