Program Description


Join us for an engaging session hosted by the Santa Barbara Public Library, Explore Ecology, and Resource Recovery & Waste Management of Santa Barbara County! Discover the art and science of composting as we uncover the secrets behind the decomposition cycle and explore the roles of fungus, bacteria, and invertebrates in this natural process. Learn various methods of building a compost pile, including insights into vermicomposting, which relies on earthworms and microorganisms. We'll cover feeding, maintenance, and troubleshooting tips for successful composting in your own space.

Explore best practices for utilizing compost and worm castings effectively, maximizing their benefits for your garden and environment. By the end of this workshop, you will understand the crucial role of composting in reducing food waste and mitigating methane production, contributing to a healthier planet.

Join us in exploring the marvels of composting and discover how simple actions can profoundly impact our environment.
