Brian Rosa our NCDENR – DPPEA Environmental Specialist/Organics Recycling Coordinator will dig into the basics of backyard composting, including bins, tools, and accessories; sift through the process of turning kitchen scraps into plant fertilizer and cultivate the production of compost tea. You will learn from an expert while experiencing the process first hand.
You go home ready to start composting with a half pound of worms and their bin.
Please bring a paper bag full of newspaper for worm bedding (no glossy ads) to the workshop.
