Compost Happens! Free Workshop Saturday, July 8

Home composting of yard waste and select kitchen waste takes materials that could wind up in a landfill and converts it into compost, a useful product for our South Florida gardens. It also avoids the energy and carbon emissions associated with transportation of this material to a centralized final disposal site. Anything that was a plant can be composted.

Want to learn how to compost? Master Gardener Terri Stephen will teach you how to make organic soil from your own kitchen and yard waste.

University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, in cooperation with Miami-Dade County’s Department of Solid Waste Management hosts FREE home composting workshops throughout the year. Here’s the next one:

When: Saturday, July 8, from 9:00am – 10:30am
Where: Thalatta Estate, 17301 Old Cutler Rd, Palmetto Bay, FL.
RSVP: 305.259.1245
