COMPOSTING Made Simple for Garden & Home Food-Waste

As part of our series of Beginning Gardener Workshops, Janet Lomastro, the doyenne of decomposition, will dig in the dirt once again to show you her unique and sensible 3-bin composting system, in Potsdam, NY.

You will leave with a very clear understanding of how to run the simplest, yet high-performing, compost pile with the least amount of effort involved. The group will be versed in the "makin', bakin' and takin'" of yard waste and food scraps.  Hands on!  We will create a working pile that you can visit the next week to check on, to see how it's heating up! 

A tour of Janet's wonderful riverside landscape garden is included.  This has been our consistently best workshop in terms of attendee evaluations and attendance.
