“Intro to Home Composting”

Tuesday, April 11th, 2023

6:00-7:30 PM

Kingston Public Library

55 Franklin St, Kingston, NY 12401

Home composting is a great way to manage food scraps like fruit and vegetable peels, coffee grounds, stale bread, and other scraps or spoiled foods so they don’t go to waste! This free workshop is designed for new/beginner composters looking to get started. The class will introduce the environmental and horticultural benefits of composting and the basic principles of how to do it correctly. Then, participants will learn about the various compost bin options and the pros and cons of each composting system. At the end of the seminar, participants will learn why compost is beneficial for soil health, and how to use their finished compost right in their own backyard.
This class will be offered in person at the City of Kingston Public Library, with host Tanesia White, Recycling Educator of the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency, in collaboration with Kingston Library’s monthly Sustainability Challenge. Please pre-register for this class to receive your free kit (walk-ins are also welcome).  Learn more about the challenge.
