The Extension Master Gardener℠ program of Guilford County will be presenting two online educational opportunities via the Zoom teleconferencing platform this fall.

Backyard Composting – Recycling with Nature
Thursday, October 8, 2020
6 p.m.

Speaker: Jeanne Aller, Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteer

Composting is a great natural way to recycle organic material – an estimated 25% of a household’s waste is food scraps and yard trimmings that can be composted. We’ll address the most frequently asked questions about this simple process to help you produce a free soil amendment that improves texture and fertility, which helps all your plants to grow better. Fall leaves provide an excellent seasonal source of raw material so now is a perfect time to get started! Discussion will include the easiest ways to begin in your own backyard, and review the basics like what should or shouldn’t be composted. We’ll also briefly share a little info about having a successful “worm bin” at home. Participants will receive handouts and links to lots of additional research-based information and resources.

These talks are free and registration is required. Please click the name of each program to register. If you encounter problems registering or if you have questions, email or call Lauren at 336 641-2400.
