Composting 101 Workshop


8/21/2014

Food Scraps

Monday, August 25, 6pm, Water Department, 250 Fresh Pond Parkway, meet at front entrance. Learn your options to compost food scraps, and ways to reduce food waste. We’ll review best practices for outdoor composting, indoor composting with worms, and options for drop-off and bicycle pickup. Recycling food scraps and making soil is extremely rewarding, benefits your garden and house plants and helps to curb climate change! Reducing food waste is also incredibly important considering that Americans waste more than 40% of the food we produce for consumption. That comes at an annual cost of more than $100 billion.
