Volunteer Workday – Let’s turn the piles!
August 9, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Want to learn how to start and maintain a compost pile? Love getting a workout and doing something meaningful?
Join us in turning the Compost Carpool Compost Piles!
Check out the steamy gloriousness that is hot composting and learn about:
- Proper moisture level
- Turning a pile (frequency, proper distribution of moisture and bacteria, the importance of oxygen in aerobic composting)
- Balancing greens and browns (nitrogen and carbon)
- Tips for heating up a pile and keeping it hot
Be sure to bring water! Even in the mornings, it gets pretty hot. We also recommend a hat and closed-toed shoes (ideally boots to protect yourself from ants).
