2019 Workshops

Build Your Own Rotating Compost Barrel

When: Saturday, March 16; 10:00 am-2:00 pm

Where: Strasburg High School; Strasburg, Virginia

Cost: $35 per barrel

No experience necessary for this workshop being held in partnership with the Strasburg FFA and Lord Fairfax Soil and Water Conservation District.  You will build your own rotating compost bin using a large recycled barrel and a wooden stand. All hardware, tools, supplies and instructions will be supplied to help you build a backyard compost bin that you can take home and use the same day. Composting helps you save money by making your own organic garden fertilizer and it is part of the three R’s of recycling: reducing, reusing and recycling kitchen and yard waste; and best of all it keeps waste out of the landfills.
