BDG – Composting with Confidence!
February 24 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am$7.50
Speaker: Joan Veach, Master Gardener.
Presentation: Most gardeners know that composting turns kitchen scraps and garden trimmings into a rich soil amendment. This presentation will focus on how that process works, and how you can make it work for you. We will meet the primary decomposers, bacteria and other microbes. Then, you will learn how to select materials for your compost system that will provide the decomposers with a balanced diet of protein (greens) and carbohydrates (browns). You will learn how to estimate the ratio of protein and carbohydrates in different food scraps and garden trimmings, so that you can keep your compost system in balance throughout the season. When this presentation is finished, you will be equipped to begin Composting With Confidence!
