Backyard Composting Workshops July 20 and 24

 

Got the Summer Time Compost Blues?

 Join the Windham Solid Waste Management District for a Composting Tips Workshop

Tuesday, July 20, 6-7:00 pm OR Saturday July 24, 4:30-5:30

WSWMD Transfer Station (327 Old Ferry Rd., Brattleboro) Backyard Composting Demonstration Site

Summer weather can make compost heat up more rapidly, but it can also dry it out faster. Our Summer Composting Tips Workshop will include topics such as: successful composting in the hot, dry weather; how food scraps are great for bringing nutrients and moisture to compost; best ways to avoid attracting wildlife; the pros and cons of different compost bins; and, how to tell when compost is ready to use and ways to use it. The workshop is offered twice to better accommodate busy summer schedules. Bring your composting questions and see you there!

Featuring a variety of compost tumblers, bins, and tools, WSWMD’s Composting Demonstration Site is open for self-guided learning. The Demo Site can also be used by garden clubs, schools, community groups, and others who want to offer compost workshops and hands-on learning opportunities. Check the District’s website (WindhamSolidWaste.org) for more information on District compost workshops and the Compost Demo Site.
