No-till gardener workshop offered this Saturday

Want to learn more about no-till gardening? There will be a workshop covering topics, including how to make hot compost.

The compost activity will be run like a potluck, so please bring one or more of the following: dry leaves, shredded paper or cardboard (cardboard that can be made into smaller pieces), food waste (meatless, please), coffee grounds, tea bags (without the staple), brewery waste, small branches (old and new separated from each other; prefer Russian olive or caragana), alfalfa hay and straw (old, without weeds or chemicals), green waste (that does not have any diseases or seeds attached). 

The workshop runs from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24. The workshop is at Green Share Gardens, around the corner from the post office and is sponsored by CMRC, the Green Share Garden and Master Gardeners. There is a fee. 

The organizers say they could use enough hardware cloth or wire fencing to make a 4’ tall x 4’ circle with the wire. 

If you have any questions, please write them down and bring them with you. Bring gloves and older clothes, we will be working at this workshop. Feel free to bring others who may be interested (4-H leaders, FFA advisers, home school leaders etc., anyone that will be willing to learn).
