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.
This class will be offered in person at the Pine Hill Community Center, with hosts Angelina Brandt, Director of Sustainability, and Tanesia White, Recycling Educator of the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency, in collaboration with the Town of Shandaken’s Conservation Advisory Council. Please pre-register for this class (walk-ins are also welcome). 

Accessibility: This class will take place indoors on the ground floor of the Community Center.  The facility is wheelchair accessible. Reserved seating is available by request; please contact Tanesia White at TWHI@UCRRA.ORG. Please note: the use of face masks is optional at the Community Center.
