Get ready for winter by moving some of your composting indoors.

This is the first part of a two part series with Amanda Matles, a Certified Master Composter with The Lower East Side Ecology Center.
These two sessions can be attended as a set or separately. $8 per session or $12 for both. Suggested, pay what you can.

Composting can be described as "human accelerated decomposition of organic matter". Composting with worms is a fast and clean indoor type of composting that turns your food scraps and junk mail into rich slow release fertilizer for your indoor plants, community gardens, food crops, street trees, or any dirt medium in need of some biological repair. We will cover the basics of decomposition in nature and how you can speed up the process with composting. We will look and learn about the "Red Wiggler" worms used in this kind of composting system. We will set up a demonstration worm bin, discuss how to maintain a productive and odorless system with troubleshooting tips. We will cover many great and important benefits of composting in our urban environment. Information about getting bin materials and worms will be covered too.
