Learn How to Compost at the Growing Center!

March 23, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Have you wanted to learn about urban composting or had trouble managing a healthy compost bin? Come learn the basics of turning yard and food waste into a valuable soil amendment in one of the most rewarding ecological activities that fits well in the city.   Lee Dwyer, Gardens Coordinator at Groundwork Somerville, will be leading a composting basics workshop at the Growing Center this Saturday from 12 to 1 pm, with possible help from Andrew Kopacz, Growing Center composting guru and the founder of “Compost This”.  You’ll learn the basics of what to compost, how to set up a simple worm bin, and how to run two different styles of outdoor bins, using the Growing Center as an outdoor classroom!

Suggested donation $5; all materials provided.  Workshop will be canceled only in the event of heavy rain or snow.

Attendance at a composting workshop AND a Volunteer Orientation are required to volunteer in the composting program at the Growing Center (arrangements can be made to do the workshop via a webinar, if needed.)
