Compost 101 + Home Waste Audit

  • Plantory 501 West 6th Street Lexington, KY, 40508 United States (map)

Recent studies estimate that 40% of the food grown in the US is never eaten and often ends up in our landfills. Recent waste audits in Fayette County show that nearly a third of our landfill-bound solid waste is organic and could be composted. You can do something about this! Seedleaf is glad to be partnering with Bluegrass Greensource to help share information on two great ways that area residents can take care of our home food waste, either by composting, or using worms to assist with that breakdown (vermicomposting). Come with your questions for this interactive discussion of the process of food breakdown, and what area gardeners can do with the finished product.
