Compost 101 Class

Did you know that when you throw your food scraps in the trashcan, the food never composts at the city dump. Instead it creates methane gas which is a huge contributor to our climate crisis.

Composting at home is not complicated (even if you don’t have a garden, it important to compost).

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of composting and how to get started. Topics include:

*How to reduce food waste with a compost
*Learn the different kinds of composts systems and which one might be best for you
*Learn about the most compost problems
*Learn how you use the compost as a fertilizer
*Learn about tax rebates available with composts

We’ll also show how to build your own worm compost bin

Years of food blogging developed into the cookbook Yummy in My Tummy, Healthy Cooking for the Whole Family. Upon the arrival of her second child, Fredrica founded Green-Mom.com.
