Composting? Let me break it down for you! Have you wanted to try backyard composting but are not sure how to begin? Have you had problems when you tried? Composting will keep food and yard waste out of the landfill and produce a product that will *greatly* benefit your garden and soil. Learn the basics of composting: > What goes into a compost pile (or bin)? What stays out? > Size matters: how big should my compost pile be? How big are the pieces I add? > How do I go from scraps to beautiful compost in the shortest length of time? > Tips and tricks for awesome compost without unpleasant <ahem> side-effects? Come learn tips and tricks from a master compost maker! The presentation includes many visuals to walk you through the process. Our interactive ONLINE class means you can ask lots of questions specific to YOUR composting situation. Plus you’ll receive handouts with lots of relevant information. Invite your family/housemates to watch this presentation along with you to ensure your household composting success! EXTRA: If you're nearby, you can schedule a visit to the Columbus Garden School compost bins and see what's cooking! We have a large yard-waste collection pile, and a smaller kitchen compost bin. ** This class is “live” and will NOT be recorded. Make sure you have the correct date and time on your calendar when you register. ** INSTRUCTOR: Joanne Schneiderman Dole. A Master Gardener since 1993, Joanne specializes in educational presentations throughout the Columbus metro area. Over the years, she’s eliminated most of the lawn on her large suburban lot while protecting the soil, water, and native wildlife. Today, her “back 40” contains ten raised beds of organic vegetables, berry bushes, and -- of course -- compost bins and rain barrels. From her native plant bed, Joanne helped to raise and release 120 monarch butterflies last summer.
