Composting is one of the best ways to amend soil for the planting and growing season, and also keeps organic waste out of the landfill and returns valuable fertilizer to the earth. As it adds nutrients to the soil, it improves soil structure and increases the ground’s ability to hold water.
Environmental Waste Services will host its spring Compost 101 class from 8:30 a.m. to noon March 24 at 1434 Commerce Street. Training will include instructions on compost ingredients, benefits of building healthy soil using compost, how to manage a compost pile and hands-on demonstration to build a compost pile. Attendees will be eligible for door prize drawings for compost bins.
The class is open to Garland residents and class size is limited to 50. Register by March 21 by calling 972-205-3500. Click here for registration form.
