Backyard Composting Workshop
Organization: Westmoreland Cleanways
Description: Fall compost season is upon us, and several Backyard Composting Workshops are planned to help you get off to a good start. Understanding what is really going on in your compost pile will help you provide just the right environment for the composting microbes to thrive and turn your garden waste into nutrient rich compost. Start now, and you’ll have a supply of compost ready for spring planting.

Backyard Composting Workshops consist of an in-depth lecture given by a Penn State Master Gardener, with a liberal dose of personal experience thrown in. Donohoe Center participants will get a tour of Westmoreland Cleanways’ Compost Demonstration Site, and participants at Valley Landfill will get a personal tour of the landfill and VL’s own compost site, the only DEP-permitted commercial compost site open to the public in Westmoreland County.

Workshops are scheduled for the following locations:

Saturday, September 15, at the Barn at Donohoe Center, 218 Donohoe Road, Greensburg

Saturday, October 20 , Valley Landfill, 6015 Pleasant Valley Road, Irwin ~ Includes landfill tour

Saturday, November 3, Oak Hollow Park, Timothy Drive, North Huntingdon

Cost of the workshop is $10, payable at the door, and pre-registration is strongly advised. Registration deadline is one week prior to each workshop, or until the class is full. Please call Westmoreland Cleanways at (724) 836-4129 for registration details and additional information.
