Be a Rot Star: Home Composting

Past event
Jun 18, 2024, 5:30 to 6:30 PM

Twiddling thumbs that you want to be green? Learn how easy it is to turn your household food waste into rich compost for your yard and garden for FREE.

Join ACSWMD as they present "Be a Rot Star: Home Composting" at the Ilsley Public Library located at 75 Main St., Middlebury, Vermont 05753 from 5:30-6:30 PM in the Jessica Swift Community Meeting Room on June 18, 2024.

You paid for your banana peels, egg shells, and carrot tops, so don't throw them away! By composting, you reduce greenhouse gas emissions, recycle nutrients locally, and create a resource for growing healthy soil and food in your community. Plus, it's a simple way to comply with Vermont's Universal Recycling Law, which bans food scraps from the landfill.

This free workshop covers compost bin options, how to set up and manage a pile, the benefits and uses of compost, troubleshooting tips, ways to prevent wildlife visits, and other options available to keep food scraps out of the trash.
