Compost Bin Sale & Workshop
October 25, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am$85
The workshop is designed to help you started with a backyard composting bin system — it’s Composting 101! You will learn how and where to set up the bin, what goes in, how to maintain it and the best part which is when and how to harvest the nutrient-rich compost to use in your garden.
The price for a bin with free workshop is $85.
The Earth Machine bins are great for backyard composting of both yard waste and food scraps. The U.S. EPA estimates that 27% of our solid waste stream is compostable – that is huge amount of garbage being trucked away that could instead be turned into beneficial compost right in your back yard! This a great time of year to start a bin because of all the carbon-rich leaves provide a nice base in which to add your food scraps. Anything that was once living can be composted, but most people stick to fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells and coffee grounds for their backyard systems.
