Compositing in your backyard!

Come and discover how simple materials can be used to get you started in the world of composting.

Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers will provide basic information on composting.  

The day will cover what materials to compost, where to place a compost system, and information on different types of composting.

After the presentation, the group will help construct a simple 3 bin compost system for the Downing Park Urban Farm. 

The system built from pallets can be made at home and used to get you started.
