Gardening with Nature: Composting

Composting is how nature's decomposition creates a rich soil amendment from our kitchen, home and yard waste materials. The process is incredibly simple: gather safe waste from your home, kitchen, or yard into a bin, pile, or pit; stir; and let nature do the rest. Master Gardener Catherine Scott will explain how to turn organic kitchen and yard waste into a nourishing soil enrichment that improves soil structure, attracts beneficial organisms, and provides the nutrients a plant needs to thrive without chemical additives. 

Gardening with Nature Workshops - Fredricksen Library has teamed up with Penn State Master Gardeners and Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay to bring you a series of eight workshops that will show you how to garden with nature.  Cost per (March-Oct) workshop $5.00 each. Registration for all programs is now open. To Register Contact: Penn State Extension, Cumberland County - 717-240-6500 or 1-888-697-0371 x6500  Sponsored by Penn State Master Gardeners.
