Build Your Own Backyard Compost Bin

Nothing aids in success in your gardening efforts more that great soil. We have a growing need to reduce the waste that is put into our landfills. We all moan and groan about bagging out leaves every fall. We have a solution that addresses all those problems, it’s simple, backyard composting.

After you complete this class you will have the knowledge to build and have built your very own backyard compost bin. We are using long lasting cedar and using a design that is easy yo use and produces great results quickly.

About the instructor. Mike Smieja is the Director of We Can Grow, a nonprofit that provides raised bed gardens to low income families in the Twin Cities. Last season Mike owned and operated Buchanan Street Farms, an urban farm in Northeast Minneapolis. Currently attending the University of Minnesota for Agriculture and Horticulture. Mike has been through the Master Gardener and Master Composter Recycler courses. Along with empowering others, Mike has a passion for food, rebuilding  community, and environmental stewardship.

Special offer!

April 27-28 2013 Mike Smieja will be teaching four different projects at the Hack Factory, including raised bed garden building, potato tower building, compost bin building, and kitchen window herb garden building.
