What: How to Compost in the City Workshop (free)
When: March 25,[masked]:30 PMRSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/carbonfreedc/calendar/9524626/Who knew composting in the city could be so easy!
Composting is the decomposition of organic materials to make an earthy, dark, crumbly substance that is excellent nutrition for your houseplants or enriching your garden. It is the best way to recycle your yard and kitchen wastes, and is a critical step in reducing the volume of garbage needlessly sent to landfills for disposal.
Join us at a workshop lead by Ed Bruske, Past-President & Co-Founder of DC Urban Gardeners
, to learn about the tremendous number of options for composting and containing your compost. You will learn that anyone can do it and no space is too small.

From Ed, "In a previous life I was an award winning reporter for The Washington Post, mainly covering the District of Columbia. I am a Master Gardener and past-president and co-founder of D.C. Urban Gardeners. I am a food writer for Martha Stewart Living and Edible Chesapeake magazine and maintain a daily food blog called The Slow Cook (www.theslowcook.com). I teach children where our food comes from and how to cook it, and I grow much of the food our family eats in the kitchen garden outside our home here in the Columbia Heights neighborhood, about a mile from the White House. Except what we put at the curb for recycling, we
compost all of the organic matter that passes through our home, incuding our late lamented Guinea pig, Shadow."RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/carbonfreedc/calendar/9524626/
