Everyone Can Compost Workshop

EVENT: Sunday, June 27 from 10:00 to 11:00am

Composting is a fun and easy way for grown-ups and children alike to do something good for our environment. Composting reuses and recycles our resources and reduces waste. Come learn how to turn your organic waste like paper, food scraps and yard trimmings into rich organic nutrients for your garden. Children 0f all ages are encouraged to attend and learn how to help! Everyone is welcome, whether you are thinking about starting to compost or an old pro who can share your experiences with the community.

You will learn the following:

1. What is compost?

2. How do you set up and start your compost?

3. What can and cannot be composted?

4. How do you care for your compost?

5. What can you do with your compost?

CLASS FEE: $20, which includes a copy of the Kids Can Compost book, an illustrated how-to guide for composting.

Members of Our Time Bank can trade two hours of their time in exchange for the class and book.

PLACE: Venice Learning Garden, 13000 Venice Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90066-3589

Please RSVP by June 23 to Wen-Chia Parker by e-mail at or call 310-254-6858
