Backyard composting workshop next Tuesday

Chittenden Solid Waste District (CSWD) is having a really great problem: The backyard composting classes keep filling up, so CSWD is continuing to offer them! The next workshop is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 12-1 pm at Green Mountain Compost. Sign up for the free workshop, and you’ll learn how easy it is to harness the forces of nature and turn food scraps into soil-building compost for your lawn and garden – right in your own backyard! The workshop is free, but registration is required. Sign up at

Attendees will receive a free kitchen collector pail and instructions. SoilSaver backyard compost bins may be purchased for $49 at the workshop. (Please bring exact amount in cash or a check for $49 made out to Green Mountain Compost.) The class will take place rain or shine. Please dress appropriately for the weather and outdoor activity.
