Composting Basics

Steve Passarelli lives in West Chicago and has been gardening and composting for over thirty years. This presentation will cover the basics of composting as well as a question and answer session. Discussion will include what materials to use, ideal placement, tending the piles, when compost is ready, and how to use it. There will also be a double compost bin on display with free plans that include a material/cut list.

Just in time for Fall, we will be discussing how to turn leaves into leaf mold, which will be a wonderful amendment to next seasons gardens.
