Composting Workshops
COMPOSTING FOR HEALTHY LANDSCAPES WORKSHOPS

Reduce household waste by up to 50% and create healthy soil by making and using compost.  Learn how to turn coffee grounds, tea bags, fruit and vegetable scraps, egg shells, yard waste and even paper towels into black gold that will transform your soil into rich, fertile earth.  Ann McGovern, MA  DEP, will lead a workshop on how to compost, types of bins to be used, and how compost can eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides in our yard and garden.  Receive materials to use to promote home composting in your community.
