Join the Beacon Food Forest for a community lesson on composting, and enter for a chance to win an 18.5-gallon compost tumbler. Details from Beacon Food Forest below:

“The biggest challenge for building healthy soil, managing our food and yard waste effectively, and “closing the loop” through sustainable practices is our lack of knowledge on the topics and practices themselves.

While’ve all heard different things, have experience with different setups, and have developed our own practices for making things happen, every day is an opportunity for us to get on the same page. So at our upcoming 3rd Saturday Work Party on August 19th, a few volunteers will be hosting a chill and beginner-friendly composting discussion and walkthrough at the food forest.

We’ll talk about what is and isn’t okay (based on the circumstance, of course), we’ll make observations on current piles & revise as necessary, discuss and demonstrate how to distribute your materials effectively, and some best practices for managing the space that you compost in.

You’re also welcome to bring your own browns or greens based on the list in the flyer! Folks who bring their own materials will be entered into a raffle for an 18.5-gallon compost tumbler!

We’re looking forward to playing in the dirt with you. 🌱”
