Backyard composting is an effective way to reduce household carbon footprints and provide quality compost for use in gardens.

The workshop will cover each of the following topics:
  • Cleaning up the vegetable garden
  • Getting perennials ready for winter
  • Winterizing your backyard compost pile
  • Preparing for spring composting
  • Getting trees ready for winter
  • How to take care of your trees throughout winter

These workshops are taught by Master Composter, Melanie Nehls Burow, Boulder County Master Gardener instructors and the owners of Altitude Arborist. Workshops sponsored and hosted by the Boulder County Resource Conservation Division.
