Composting Basics Workshop

November 3, 2011 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

| $5

This workshop will provide the information to start or improve a home compost system. Participants will learn the basics for successful composting along with an introduction to vermicomposting (composting with worms). Home composting enables you to recycle leaves, grass clippings, garden debris and food waste into valuable compost that improves soil health when applied to gardens and lawns. Home composting also reduces the cost for the community to collect and manage these materials.

The compost workshop will be on Thursday, November 3rd at 6-8 pm at the Dane County UW Extension office, 1 Fen Oak Court Madison, WI 53718.

The program presenters are Joanne Tooley, Master Composter and vermicomposting enthusiast and Joe Muellenberg, Master Composter. The UW Cooperative Extension Master Composter program trains volunteers to provide compost training to community members.

 

Registration is $5 per person and due by Monday, Oct. 31. Visit the Dane Co UW Extension website for more information and the registration flyer. Or call Emily at 608-224-3707.
