Did you know one quarter of U.S. solid waste is comprised of yard clippings and food scraps? When this organic matter ends up in the landfills and decomposes without air, it produces methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide.  A compost pile or worm farm (vermiculture) is a simple but effective way to cleanly convert waste from the coffee maker, kitchen, or garden into something productive and useful.  As our Native and Colonial friends know, composting organic waste reduces the volume of garbage sent to landfills, and it produces free organic fertilizer to enrich your garden and houseplant soil.  It’s an easy way to play a part in cleaning up your part of the world! This workshop is FREE with Plimoth Plantation museum admission.  Reservations are encouraged, please call 508-746-1622 ext. 8359.
