Fallen leaves, grass clippings, shrubbery trimmings, and tree limbs are all valuable plant material which can be used to enhance your landscape. By composting throughout the year you  can improve soil texture, promote root development in plants, and create a good environment for microorganisms and earthworms. If you are interested in learning more about composting register for the free composting 101 workshop. Register for a drawing to win free Earth Machine Compost Bins! Learn more below.

Composting 101- Workshops, hosted by NC Cooperative Extension and the Piedmont Triad Water Quality Partnership helped participants learn how to turn yard trimmings and kitchen scraps into nutrient rich compost for their landscape.
