Water Wise Gardens – Compost

August 17, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Holland Board of Public Works and Windmill Island Gardens are teaming up to tackle water conservation this summer, through a series of workshops called Water Wise Gardens!

In the Water Wise Garden composting workshop, we’ll be learning from a local compost expert on how to make your own compost at home. Compost enriches soil with lots of nutrients, but it also increases the soil’s capacity to retain moisture – that means less watering! We’ll discuss how to make, use, and manage at-home compost, so you can leave confident to start your own system at home.

All materials are provided for this workshop.

This workshop is free, and does not require any registration. All ages and abilities are welcome!
