    Custom Composter Workshop

    Saturday, September 15th, 10 - noon.
    Emi Carvell, Master Gardener

    Compost provides a multitude of benefits to garden soil, and homemade compost is the sustainable way to reap those benefits. On Saturday, September 15th, from 10-noon, Master Gardener Emi Carvell will demonstrate how to build a custom compost bin using inexpensive, reused, and repurposed materials. She will also explain the benefits of compost, how to keep your composter productive, and why homemade compose is preferable to municipal source compost.

    Attendees are encouraged to bring kitchen scraps to contribute to the demonstration composter.

    Emi Carvell is a Master Gardener with more than 2000 hours (over 1000 in 2017!) of community service to the Master Gardener Program. She teaches a variety of classes on vegetable and organic gardening, succulent container gardening, and vermicomposting, as well as motivational programs.

  • Registration for the free class is required. Please E-mail botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.
