Small Scale Composting Methods for the Home

Saturday, November 5th, 2016; 10am – 12pm; $5/family

This workshop will provide an introductory overview of small-scale composting and composting methods that encourage home and garden waste-stream management and soil enrichment. A variety of simple to complex composting methods and goals will be discussed. Steve Rees, CCE-Chautauqua County Master Gardener Volunteer, will be leading this workshop. He is a retired Professor of Theatrical Production having taught 28 years at SUNY Fredonia. He is particularly interested in shrubs, compost and supporting his wife's avid perennial flower cultivation.
