The average American throws out 4.5 pounds of trash every single day. It may not seem all that much, but with over 300 million people in the United States, that is roughly 728,000 tons of daily garbage. What makes this bad is over 70% of what goes into landfills could be recycled or used for compost.
Composting is the speeding up of the natural process of decomposition. The goal is to improve soil composition by returning useful waste back to your garden. Today many cities have prohibited green waste from your garbage. Now is the best time ever to learn the basics of composting.
Laura Wilkinson is a Master Composter, and she is joining us this week for a webinar. She is going to cover the basic how-to of composting. She will also cover hot or cold composting. Bokashi and vermiculture will be discussed too. Hear updates on composting in your yard, your green bins, and how vermiculture composting is a natural insect repellant and fertilizer.
