Ready to get started composting? OR -- would you like to get some ideas for how to re-start your old compost system? The Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District is bringing a free backyard compost workshop to the North Branch Nature Center at 713 Elm Street in Montpelier on Saturday, May 26, from 10 am - noon.
This workshop is filling up, so please register here: //www.cvswmd.org/program-registration.html
We'll talk about how to get started, how to keep smells and animals away; we'll review a variety of different composting systems for different situations; Vermont's Universal Recycling Law and its landfill ban on food scraps starting in 2020; and we'll provide backyard compost bins for sale at half-price ($25 each). Half-priced bins are available, one-per household to workshop attendees only, only for the day of the workshop.
We will also raffle off a Green Cone, and each workshop participant will leave with a "starter kit" kitchen counter food scrap pail and a booklet about how to compost.
Pre-register now: //www.cvswmd.org/program-registration.html
Call 802-229-9383 x102 with any questions.
North Branch Nature Center is one of our local projects. Thanks to the work of EMG Sandy Paar, North Branch Nature Center has been selected as a Pollinate New England workshop host and garden installation site. To be installed the summer of 2018.
