During the first week of May, Clayton County Extension will celebrate International Compost Awareness Week by offering a free class on vermicomposting. Vermicomposting is an easy way to turn food scraps into a low cost, high quality soil amendment for the garden. Compost indoors. All it takes is a plastic bin, food scraps, a bit of newspaper and …..worms.
Compost can be used to enrich the garden, to improve the soil around trees and shrubs, and as a soil amendment for houseplants.
The vermicomposting class will be offered on Tuesday, May 3, in the front conference room at 1262 Government Circle. To register, please call 770-473-5434. For information about additional horticultural classes, please look at the Upcoming Events column on our website.
