Home composting webinar scheduled

AMSTERDAM — Grow Amsterdam NY will host an online Home Composting Webinar on Tuesday at 1 p.m. as well as June 18 at 6:30 p.m.

During this 60-75 minute webinar, participants will learn about the problem of food scraps in the landfill, tips on preventing food waste. How to build a compost pile, the options on different compost systems, tumblers, and troubleshoot what’s happening in your compost pile.

Compost is the black gold of the gardening world and can be made from your food scraps and yard waste. This nutrient-rich organic matter is free fertilizer. It improves soil structure and builds water holding capacity. Organic matter breaks down slowly releasing nitrogen and nutrients plants need to support healthy growth.
