** Sorry, this class registration has been filled **

Did you know that up to 30% of your average household waste is organic and can be turned into compost?  What happens to the coffee grounds and table scraps at your house?  Would you like to learn how this “waste” can be turned into a nutrient-rich food product for your garden or flower bed?  Are you interested in a home composter and learning how to use it in just a few hours? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, plan to join us for the Composting: From Garbage to Gold workshop on Sunday, April 26, 2015, from 2-4 p.m. at the Coshocton County Services Building.  Registration for the workshop is $35 and must be paid in advance to hold your spot in the class.  Registration is limited to 25 participants.  Each workshop participant will take home a 65 gallon Composter, a countertop food waste bin, and a starter supply of 2.5 gallon compostable bags. You will walk away from the workshop with a ready to use compost kit and material explaining the process and benefits.

Cost for this workshop is $35 and class size is limited to 25.  Registration forms can be found online or call the OSU Extension Office at 740.622.2265  The composting workshop is a collaborative effort of OSU Extension- Coshocton County, Coshocton Soil and Water Conservation District, and Coshocton County Recycling and Litter Prevention.  Generous support for the workshop was provided by the OSU Extension- Robert M Thomas Fund.
