Browns? Greens? Grass? Leaves? Banana peels? Learn the easiest and most effective way to compost, including how to effectively recycle your kitchen scraps and how to maximize carbon and nitrogen in your pile. Composting with the GROW BIOINTENSIVE method is the basis for growing the healthiest, most nutritious, and most pest- and disease-resistant plants. Bring a 5-gallon bucket of “green material” (grass clippings, young weeds and/or non-meat kitchen scraps). This ever-popular class includes a hands-on demonstration at the Common Ground Garden. Taught by Robin Mankey. Robin works to connect people with the earth through growing food and through her local company, Take Root. She helps get home gardens going and keeps them ﬂourishing. She is co-author of Ecology Action’s Booklet 34 – Food for the Future Now.
