Composting Workshop
July 18, 2017

Efficient and active composting systems are vital for gardens and farms, converting waste products into beneficial soil-supporting material.  Composting breaks down organic matter into humus, which improves tilth, fertility, and biological activity when added to the soil.  With a very basic understanding of compost principles, anyone may be successful with composting, contributing greatly to the health of the garden’s soil ecosystem. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the various roles of compost in a garden or on a farm
  • Develop a working knowledge of the compost process (i.e. decomposition)
  • Practice how to make and maintain a good compost pile AND worm bin
  • Learn proper application methods of finished compost

Workshop participants will learn by doing.  By the end of the workshop, we will have constructed an open, bio-intensive compost pile AND a separate worm bin.  All materials will be provided. Participants should bring their own pair of gloves.
