Composting 101

Saturday, August 8, 2020

It’s that time of year again! Garland Environmental Waste Services will host a Compost 101 class for Garland residents. Learn from certified Master Composters how to keep your yard trimmings and other organic materials from ending up in the landfill, while producing a beneficial soil amendment for all your gardening needs. Training will include instructions on compost ingredients, benefits of building healthy soil, managing compost piles and hands-on demonstrations in addition to door prizes. Due to the high level of information, small children would find the course uninteresting. Please wear closed-toe shoes. The majority of the course will be indoors, but please bring a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses or anything else needed for your comfort for the 15 - 20 minute outdoor portion of the seminar. Free parking is available in front of 1434 Commerce St. and across the street at the Fire Administration building.
