This beginner backyard composting workshop teaches you how to turn yard trimmings and food scraps in to compost. Compost enriches soil, helping retain moisture, suppresses plant disease and pests, and reduces the need for chemical fertilizers. Participants will learn tips on how to set up their own backyard composting system in a manageable space while helping to reduce waste in our landfills.

$5.00 for the general public and FOHXG membership “Friend” level and, free for supporting, corporate or lifetime memberships.
