Lecture -- The Benefits of Composting

We will examine the processes and benefits of composting your food preparation by-products and food consumption wastes. Highlights include step-by-step guidelines for setting up in-home as well as backyard composting bins, the advantages of worm composting (vermicomposting) and how to get started. We will discuss how and where to use the mature compost produced. The benefits of composting include reducing your contribution to the local landfill, decreasing the amount of methane (a powerful greenhouse gas) your food wastes might generate, and virtually eliminating any water pollution impacts resulting from your food preparation and food waste. You can also reduce your water usage, and provide natural fertilizer for your landscaping and gardening. Come experience worm composting first-hand!
