Olive Library

This advanced composting seminar is ideal for home composters who understand the basics of composting, but want to ‘up their game.’ Let us help you to learn more skills and tricks to address some common troubleshooting issues, and make that ‘gardener’s black gold’ as quickly as possible. This class will review some of the science behind how composting ‘works’ through the soil food web, how to balance browns and greens, and various tips for making a hot compost heap. This class will also introduce concepts of indoor composting, such as vermicomposting and bokashi methods.

This class will be offered in person at the Olive Library, facilitated by Angelina Brandt, Director of Sustainability of the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency, in collaboration with the Olive Library. Please pre-register for this class (walk-ins are also welcome). 

Accessibility: The Library offers accessible parking and a ground level entrance at the rear of the library. Visitors may ring the doorbell for assistance if needed. An elevator is available to access the second floor, where the program will be.
