Urban Composting 101

hosted by Brooklyn Grange

“Did you know that almost 20% of New York City’s landfill contributions are compostable food scraps? These scraps make gorgeous fertilizer for your soil, but when tossed in the trash they contribute to the greenhouse gasses laying waste to our environment. Keep them out of landfills, save money on gardening supplies, and build healthy soils by learning how to compost at home¬†with the help of marvelous red worms and other decomposers!

In this class, Master Composter Celeste McMickle will cover the basics of composting, discuss the best methods being used in urban areas, and talk about the tools and resources we need to make our own soil.”
