About The Event
Great Reasons to Compost Food Scraps and Yard Waste
SAVE MONEY – Converting your food scraps and yard trimmings to compost saves on buying soil amendments and fertilizers. Homeowners who discard yard waste are giving away their yards’ potential soil nutrients.
SAVE TIME – Discarding yard waste to a compost pile is often faster than bagging and bundling for a streetside pickup.
REDUCE TRASH DISPOSAL – Your community will need less landfill space and incinerator capacity. Less pollution will be emitted by landfills and waste-hauling trucks
EDUCATIONAL – Learning about composting and natural processes is interesting for people young or old. Children can learn to conserve natural resources through composting activities. It’s a great way to teach natural sciences.

Carol and Don Ostler will explain and as well as demonstrate the methods of composting and recycling that they use to reduce their carbon footprint. The Ostlers have been concerned about the amount of waste going into our landfills and even our oceans. By repurposing, reusing, and transforming both organic and solid, we can all do our part creating a cleaner, safer and more livable world.
