Composting Demonstrations

Composting Demo MG 2016 - 06_1200px.jpg

Extension Master Gardeners will teach how to achieve a proper carbon:nitrogen ratio, or “green” materials vs. “brown” materials, and show you several types of structures that can be built or purchased for composting. You’ll learn how to construct a compost pile, and discuss basic troubleshooting if your compost pile is not breaking down as it should.

At each composting program, two random participants will win either a composting thermometer or a composting bin. Composting Demonstrations are presented at the Pioneers Park Nature Center’s backyard composting demonstration area across the street from the Nature Center (look for the Extension banner). Demonstrations will be held at 10 a.m. on the following Saturdays: May 21, June 25, Sept. 24 and Oct. 22.
