Come learn the basics of backyard composting, the dos and don'ts, how to keep your pile active, and the basic science behind it. We'll also work together to set up a simple composting set up made mostly from scavenged materials at Makerspace. Rian can further talk about how it is done on a large scale at commercial facilities. Bring your questions, success stories and failure stories to share and ask about for some expert advice!
This workshop will cost $20 per person, and will be capped at 20 participants. Again, RSVP for this event here: http://www.portcitymakerspace.com/index.cfm/calendar/composting-workshop-2-4pm/
