Free Composting Workshop

Spring is almost here and it is time to start thinking about this year’s garden! The Penn State Master Gardeners of Susquehanna County are once again holding their free composting classes. And, as in the past, attendees will receive a free composting bin supplied by the Department of Environmental Protection (one per household).

Each class will take approximately one hour and will cover everything you need to know to make rich, black compost from household and yard waste. In addition to enriching the soil, composting is nature’s way of recycling. By learning about home composting, we can play an active role in reducing the amount of trash taken to landfills.

All classes will be held in the downstairs conference room of the County Office Building, 31 Public Ave., Montrose. Class dates are: Thursday, March 22; 7 p.m.; Friday, March 23, 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.; Saturday, March 24, 10 a.m. Immediately following the classes, the bins will be available for pickup. There are only 100 bins available, therefore pre-registration is required. To register, contact the Penn State Cooperative Extension Office at 278-1158.
