Did you know that the average American household throws out 20lbs of food each month and that yard trimmings and food waste account for 25% of all municipal solid waste? Composting food waste and yard trimmings can be an excellent way both to feed your garden AND to cut back on what you send to the landfill. Still, even with all the benefits, it can seem like a daunting task to learn just how to set up a good composting system and make it work for you. With this in mind, we’re excited to announce a free composting demonstration on Saturday, August 15th! We’re partnering with some great local experts to bring you everything you need to know to get started composting. Just come on out and join us Saturday morning from 10 am to noon at the First Congo patio and bring all of your questions. We hope to see you there!
