Backyard Composting Workshop


Fall is a great time to start composting.  Ideally, our tree leaves, grass clippings, and even food waste can all be turned into beneficial compost for our yards and gardens. Sounds easy, right? – but what are the various methods and where do you start?
Zero Waste Vashon has created a video series featuring Island residents and the compost systems that they use.  We’ll premiere these videos at three virtual workshops that will show you how they compost from the ground up.
The series will include an introductory session followed by two sessions on specific backyard composting methods. All sessions will be held on Zoom and our local composters will be available to answer your questions at each session.
Come join us for an insider’s view into how composting works on Vashon! Share your ideas on composting at home!
