    Home composting is easy & fun – well, maybe “satisfying” is a better word! What other single activity...

    • keeps material out of your​ landfill,
    • conserves energy by reducing waste ​transport costs,
    • conserves water when used as a soil conditioner, and 
    • saves money by reducing dumping fees and the need to buy soil ​amendments?

    Learn how to reduce, reuse, and recycle your kitchen, garden, and yard waste with Liz Stanley, UMaine Extension horticulture program coordinator and Hildy Ellis, Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District program manager.

    Liz and Hildy will demonstrate a variety of techniques for making compost at home - including aerobic and anaerobic methods - and provide tips on feeding your pile with the ideal proportion of waste, water, and air. 

    Handouts will be available for building a variety of bins, and there will be order forms to purchase reduced cost composters and accessories. Backyard Composting and Rain Barrel Sale

    ​Program will be held inside and outside - please dress for the weather!
