Composting Workshop

Instructor: Erin Murphy, Orchid Conservatory Supervisor

Compost is great for gardens and landscaping and you save money by not having to buy soil conditioners, mulch, and fertilizer. Learn how to create an easy and inexpensive compost bin, find out what belongs in your compost bin and what doesn’t, learn how composting improves soil fertility and more!
