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 share her method of building 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 compost is preferable to municipal source compost. Emi Carvell is a Master Gardener with over 2000 hours of community service (1000 hours during last year) 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.
