A garden’s design begins in the mind though its bounty lies beneath our feet.

Part 1: Preparing the way for home composting and bountiful gardens

How do we begin to look at our organic household and yard waste as the heart and soul of our gardens? How can our kitchens and gardens work in concert to regenerate and create living soil? Join Angela Curtes for an indoor afternoon discovering why the earth beneath our feet is so important and what we can do to prepare the way for home composting this spring.

This hands-on, outdoor workshop is designed for those wanting to take their gardening experience to the next level by incorporating a small home compost system. You will go home with all the information and elements needed to start a simple compost system that can be managed throughout the year.
