If you’re interested in composting at home but not exactly sure how to get started, or if you have a compost pile or bin that isn’t “working” the way it should, join us for this late winter hands-on workshop that will give you the knowledge and skills you need to successfully turn your kitchen scraps into dark, crumbly humus-rich compost!

Early spring is a great time to start a compost pile and all participants will receive a copy of Storey’s Easy Composters You Can Build at Home booklet.

The workshop fee is $25 per individual or $30 per family. Dirt curious children are welcome! A minimum of 6 participants or families must register by March 7 or the class will be rescheduled. The maximum class size is 20.

Don’t forget the worms! Anyone interested in worm composting can stick around after the Backyard Composting workshop for a brief introduction to vermicomposting. Interested folks can purchase a simple worm kit that includes a worm bin, worms, worm bedding, newspaper, spray bottle, and worm food- everything you need to get started! The worm kit costs $40. Worm kits must be requested and paid for by March 7 to ensure availability.

Ten percent of registration fees will be donated to the Lake Claire Community Land Trust. For every worm kit purchased, $5 will be donated to the Land Trust.
