COMPOSTING Made Simple for Garden & Home

More basic gardening skills you can apply to your daily life!

What is the downfall of every home compost system? TURNING IT! No matter the good intentions, it does not happen - and you end up with raw food at the top, with slime on the bottom - yuck!

This system is a user-friendly way to create compost that takes human nature into account!!

Janet Lomastro, the doyenne of decomposition, will dig in the dirt once again to show you her unique and sensible 3-bin composting system, in Potsdam, NY.  Never (not!) turn your pile again!

You will leave with a very clear understanding of how to run the simplest, yet high-performing, compost pile with the least amount of effort involved.
The group will be versed in the "makin', bakin' and takin'" of yard waste and food scraps. 

Hands on!  We will create a working pile that you can visit the next week, too, to see how it's heating up! 
A tour of Janet's wonderful riverside landscape garden is included. 
This wonderful workshop has been on our schedule since 2011 and is consistently a favorite in terms of attendee evaluations.
