Composting Made Easy

Wednesday, April 28, 2021

Join “Waste Sleuth” Todd Sutton, and learn the basics of how to start your own compost pile. Turn your food waste into nutrient-rich soil.

Keeping organic materials onsite, and creating compost is one of the most important activities one can do for our environment. Whether just beginning to learn how to compost or improving upon your composting skills, everyone is sure to learn something new and have fun in the process.

Learn how easy it is to make compost in your backyard from household food scraps, leaves and yard trimmings. 

Good reasons to attend
  • Composting your yard trimmings and food scraps is easy, adds nutrients to your yard and garden, kind to our environment and good for you, too! 
  • Save money, save water, and conserve natural resources.
  • If done correctly, a compost pile can produce finished compost within three months which can be used as a soil booster. 
  • Composting food scraps and yard trimmings at home is an excellent way to help reduce the generation of harmful greenhouse gases.
  • San Mateo County residents who attend the workshop are eligible to take advantage of no- and low-cost composting resources
