Compost Happens! [Free; Online; RSVP]

November 9, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Did you know that the average American household wastes about a third of the food it purchases every year? Join us as we examine ways to put your trash can on a diet- even during the holiday season!  We’ll learn about the benefits of composting and ways to prevent food waste. Composting is an easy DIY activity that makes a big impact on resource conservation in your local community, AND, helps reduce methane and carbon emissions that contribute to global climate change.  We’ll show you how simple it is to compost at home, whether you live on a tiny urban lot or in the rural wide open.  We’ll answer all your questions, offer tips for success, and ensure you can compost with confidence!

Additionally, if you see this in time, the Frederick County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling will be selling compost bins throughout September.  Miss the sale?  Not to worry.  In class we’ll discuss bins you can make or buy!
