Large-Scale Composting: Bins & Beyond

BULLETIN 16 May 2016: Due to insufficient registrations, this program has been cancelled.
For more ambitious gardeners, especially those growing food, you will require more compost and produce more organic matter to be composted. This requires a larger set up, tools you probably already have, more careful monitoring of temperature and moisture, and other steps to make high quality compost. This workshop is designed for gardeners who want to begin larger-scale composting to support a larger garden or ornamental landscape. We cover two setups: the “Three-Bin System” and an open pile or window.
Led by Dr. Gene Bazan of Neo-Terra
