This Rots! Composting Workshops
Sending our kitchen waste to landfills produces methane, a very powerful greenhouse gas. 96% of US food waste ends up in landfills, where it rots anaerobically; landfills produce 17% of US methane emissions.
But, done right, backyard compost piles are aerobic decomposition and DON'T produce methane! The Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste Management District will help you get your compost pile right with free composting workshops with Vermont Master Composter Cat Buxton:
On May 19, 11 am - 1 pm, the Thetford Energy Committee is sponsoring an outdoor composting class with Cat Buxton. The class will cover the best ways to manage yard waste, community garden compost, and integrating a compost system into your home kitchen and garden without a lot of fuss.
All workshop attendees can purchase a Soil Saver composter for $35 (rather than the standard $50).
