Do you want to start composting but don't know where to begin, or you already have a compost bin that is not doing what you expected? By composting at home, you can help protect the planet and improve your soil and plants. Join the Staff Senate and Rhonda Sherman, NC State Extension Specialist, to learn how to successfully compost 100 types of organic materials, including food scraps and yard debris. This is a virtual event.
Bio: Rhonda Sherman has been providing education and technical assistance on vermicomposting and composting at NC State University for 28 years. The founder and Director of the Compost Learning Lab and a global authority on vermicomposting, she organizes an annual conference on large-scale vermicomposting that draws participants from all over the world. Rhonda gives about 50 presentations annually and has authored over 65 publications on vermicomposting and composting.
"I have tried out two dozen types of compost bins at my Compost Learning Lab at NC State University and these two manufactured bins are my favorites: The Earth Machine and FreeGarden Earth. Both of them sell for around $100 retail but you can get them for a 50%+ discount during April and May in the Raleigh, North Carolina area. You do not have to be a resident of either place to get the discount."
The Town of Cary is selling compost bins for half off the retail price during the month of April
Wake County is selling compost bins at half off during the month of May
This event is sponsored by the Sustainability Partners program, a partnership between NC State Staff Senate and the University Sustainability Office.
