Bennington Educational Event to Cover Backyard Composting
Removing food scraps and yard waste from the landfill stream will be the law in Vermont by July 1, 2020. Learn how to turn waste into compost, reduce your trash size and smell, feed the soil, save money and the planet on Thursday, August 8, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at 1 Monument Circle in Bennington. Cat Buxton, Master Composter and community educator with the UVM Extension, will cover the spectrum of possible and practical ways to manage trash, including composting in the backyard. She’ll cover the basics and get into detail about compost ingredients and recipes, bin types and management systems. Her enthusiastic and simple approach will surely demystify the process. Registration is not required. The workshop is being hosted by the Bennington Chapter of the UVM Extention Master Gardeners. Admission is $5; UVM Extension Master Gardeners and interns are free.
