Backyard Composting Workshops include a Compost Bin

Posted on September 7, 2016

Somerset County will be holding two composting workshops on Wednesday, September 21 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m and again at 6:30 to 8 pm. The workshop includes a high quality 3′ tall Earth Machine composter for each participant.

Where: Somerset County Administration Building, 20 Grove Street, Somerville, New Jersey 08876

Composting reduces the amount of discarded garbage, acts as a natural fertilizer by returning nutrients to the soil, improves soil aeration and reduces soil diseases. It also helps to conserve the earth’s resources. Composting creates rich organic humus suitable for adding to gardens and landscaping.
