BACKYARD COMPOSTING WORKSHOP OFFERED

San Bernardino County residents are invited to attend a free Backyard Composting Workshop being held on Saturday, May 5, 2007 from 10-11AM in the Monte Vista I Building, Life Bible Fellowship Church, 2426 N. Euclid Ave., Upland. 

The workshop is free and open to the public.

Workshop attendees will learn how composting organic materials can save money, reduce waste and create a healthy landscape or garden.  Composting is a better use of leaves, plant prunings and grass clippings rather than putting them in the trash or green waste barrels.  Participants will receive free expert advice and “how-to” materials on starting and maintaining a backyard compost pile.  Low-cost composting bins will also be available for sale to San Bernardino County residents. 

Composting coaches from the County Solid Waste Management Division will conduct the workshop taking attendees through the easy process of making compost.  Spring is a great time to get started composting.  Composting, the natural decomposition of organic material, creates an environmentally beneficial product while significantly reducing the amount of material being thrown away.  Compost is an excellent soil amendment that helps improve soil structure and reduces watering needs.  Compost can also be used as mulch.  Mulching around plants can reduce soil erosion and help protect plant roots from scorching summertime temperatures.  Home gardeners find that compost helps produce healthier flowers and plants.
