In Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood

Compost. Managing a Natural Process

Backyard Composting is simply taking a process that’s completely natural and speeding it up so that we can reuse the yard waste from our gardens for the benefit of our gardens. If you can’t take one of my classes (see previous post) then take the time to watch these videos and feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Composting and Sustainable Gardening Classes

We’re getting a lot of hits and comments about composting so Fall must be close! If you don’t live in the Greater Charlotte NC area, please watch the composting videos for a quick how-to. But if you are lucky enough to live in the area, Mecklenburg County offers 4 hr Composting and Sustainable Gardening classes for only $10 and you don’t have to live inside the county lines to take advantage of them! What’s more, you get a wire composting bin and a book of information and a comprehensive list of native plants. Go to the Wipe Out Waste website for a listing of the classes. I’ll be teaching the classes being held on Oct 3rd, Oct 24th, 31st, and Nov 7th.
