REEP Green Home Workshop: Build a Backyard Pet Waste Composter
Tuesday, June 21, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Build a Backyard Pet Waste Composter
Puppy Powered Gardens
Half of all households in Waterloo Region care for a pet, which means a lot of pet waste. If dealt with poorly, pet waste can contaminate waterways and burden our landfills. Find out how to turn your pet droppings into a valuable garden resource and take care of the planet at the same time!
- Introduction to dealing with pet waste
- Hands-on construction of simple composters (one per participant) that can be installed underground in your backyard to turn this year’s pet waste into next year’s garden fertilizer
- Meet and greet with Nomi the REEP Water Dog
Presented by: Cheryl Evans, Water Education Coordinator, REEP Green Solutions
Note: Materials for composter will be provided free of charge. Registration limited to 20 people. Tools will be used during the workshop and so we recommend participants are a minimum age of 12 years.
