UGA Extension DeKalb County Compost Workshop

  • DeKalb Extension Auditorium 4380 Memorial Dr Decatur, GA, 30032 United States (map)

This workshop is provided by the Healthy Soil, Healthy Community Initiative and its community partners. 

Learn how to turn garden trash into soil treasure.  Join us as we discover how to create compost for your community or school garden.  We will explore what can go in the compost pile, what needs to stay out of the compost pile, and the role temperature plays in creating perfect compost.

To register please contact DeKalb County Extension at 404-298-4080

For our community and educational gardens, if you take part in this workshop, your entire community garden will be eligible to receive a soil test, quality compost, a compost bin, a weatherproof sign, and a composting thermometer - compliments of Food Well Alliance. You will need to register for the Healthy Soil, Healthy Community Initiative in order to qualify. Register here by July 28.
