Join the Ecology Center's resident Master Composter, Carrie Bennett, for a free Basic Compost workshop (at Elephant Pharmacy) and discover amazing resources in your own backyard. With ordinary yard and kitchen trimmings, home composters can make a free soil booster. Using homemade compost will cut down on the amount of fertilizer and water we needed in your garden. Compost makes soil more fertile and helps gardens and lawns become healthy and lush. Composting is easy -- anyone can learn to compost by following some basic steps. Give a compost pile about six months and get back a crumbly, sweet smelling compost that looks and feels like soil. Home composting is good for the environment, good for your yard, and easy to do!
