Compost Bin Workshop
June 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us on Wednesday, June 26 at 6:00 p.m. to build your own composter! Backyard composting is an easy way to reduce waste and create rich soil nutrients to enrich your garden at the same time. Taking advantage of natural processes, composting minimizes land-filled residential waste and produces a valuable organic fertilizer.
The composting workshop includes everything you need to successfully begin home composting. We’ll discuss various types of compost systems and techniques in addition to troubleshooting tips to avoid potential problems.
Workshop price is $60 ($50 EAC member price).
These bins are constructed with two pieces that can detach for easy transportation and relocation.
Workshop space is limited and pre-registration is required. This workshop runs rain or shine. Bring an appropriate vehicle to transport your compost bin home. These are two part bins that can fit in an SUV or van.
Workshop location and other pertinent details will be sent out prior to the workshop.
