International Compost Awareness Week: Compost 101

  • Whole Foods Market 4059 Finn Way Lexington, Kentucky 40517 USA (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 Whole Foods Market to help share information on ways that area residents can take care of our home food waste. Come with your questions for this interactive discussion of the process of food breakdown, and what area gardeners can do with the finished product. This is part of a discussion series in honor of International Compost Awareness Week.
