Composting is Cool!

Did you know that the earth likes to eat the same food that we do? Banana peels and apple cores are a tasty treat for the garden, instead of the trash can. In this workshop, we will learn about composting – what it is, why it’s important, and how to do it at home. Small compost buckets will be provided for all workshop participants to take home.
