Home composting is an inexpensive, rewarding, and environmentally beneficial way to manage organic materials. Yard waste like leaves and grass clippings, along with kitchen scraps and soiled paper, make up nearly half of what a household discards.
But rather than throw these organics away, why not compost them into nutrient-rich soil additive for your garden? Anyone can compost. It's simple, and you can do it in your back yard or even indoors.
The following organizations present composting demonstrations and workshops regionally across the state. Call them for additional information.
