Cut household waste in half and create healthy soil by making and using compost. Learn how to turn coffee grounds, tea bags, fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells, yard waste, and even paper towels into "black gold" that will transform your soil into rich fertile earth. Ann McGovern of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection will lead a workshop on how to compost, different types of bins, indoor worm composting for apartment dwellers, and how to use compost to eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and irrigation in your yard and garden. Receive materials you can use to promote home composting in your community.
