Have you always wanted to compost in your backyard or community garden, but haven’t known where to begin? Have you tried but given up due to poor results? Do you just need help troubleshooting your existing composting system? Or do you want to join a food scrap drop-off cooperative? If any of these are true for you, join us for a free hot composting workshop this Saturday! Space is limited so register soon. Can’t attend this workshop? Please share with your networks, or let us know if you’d like a workshop in your area!
ILSR’s Composting for Community Project is offering these free workshops under a grant from the Food Matters Program of the Baltimore Office of Sustainability.
Space is limited! Register here. You must be registered AND have your registration confirmed by us in order to attend. No walk-ins.
This class will provide community-scale and home composters the background they need to get started, troubleshoot on their own, and produce high-quality compost. Composting is not rocket science but there are some key facts composters need to know! We will cover the importance of oxygen, moisture, balancing nitrogen-rich material with carbon-rich material, which materials not to compost, and how to know the compost is ready to use. We will demonstrate how to compost successfully using a multi-bin system and how to avoid odor problems and attracting unwanted critters.
