EVENT: Get started (or more involved) with composting

Join us Feb. 13 for “Let’s Make Some Black Gold!“, a look at composting, waste reduction and recycling in our area.

This 90-minute workshop blends indoor lessons with outdoor, hands-on activities in our compost demonstration area, and includes live demonstrations of our biogas and vermicomposting programs. Register early through ufsarasotaext.eventbrite.com to reserve your seat and receive notice of any changes.

Attendees will learn the basics of home composting, the benefits of composting, and how to build a home compost system. Plus, attendees will have the option to purchase a GEOBIN compost bin (see registration options, below).

NOTE: There are two registration options for this workshop:

  1. Workshop PLUS a GEOBIN compost bin: $25 registration (includes bin cost), which must be made in advance of the workshop.
  2. Workshop with no GEOBIN: Cost is free.

Make 2020 your year to start composting and reducing your impact on the environment!
